For years I struggled with cravings that were contrary to the new nature I was supposed to have as a Christian. I knew that Jesus came that we might have life, so why didnt I have it. Why did the old sometimes still appeal? Why did I let it cool the passion I had for God? Why instead, had the new not forced out the old? Had I missed something along the way? I came to point where I had to know. Im glad I came to that point. Jesus words are true; If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink. I knew what it was like to come to Him; my problem was that I allowed myself to get distracted from coming. When we come to Him, He gives birth to a new nature in us. To the extent that we feed it, it will grow. If we neglect feeding it, it will wither. He really did come that we might have life; He came to give us a new nature. And with that new nature comes a whole New Set of Cravings.
