People have a right to choose their human nature, it tells people this in The Holy Bible, King James Version and in the Old Testament – Genesis 1:27 – telling people, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
When we look to the Biblical perspective of people’s human nature, it can either be good or bad. It’s a person’s choice according to God’s word and they choose what they want to become. All humanity has a sin nature; and God gave humanity the ability to a free will too. We can either elect to follow the Holy Spirit and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior or to accept another route in life.
God created every human being on this earth for a purpose, his purpose, and this is a part of our humanity. When people look for a definition of human nature, it defines it in simple terms; it is a person’s traits and qualities; and the Christian’s definition is a person having free will of his/her choice and their relationship with God.
When people elect to have a sin nature, they elect to have a nature that is disobedient to God. There’s not a person on this earth that wasn’t born without a sin nature and it can be traced back through ancestries as far as Adam and Eve. The Bible tells people, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” (Romans 5: 12)
I’m glad I was given the right to choose my human nature. I’ve often heard people say, “Oh that’s human nature;” and I’ve questioned if they know what a person’s human nature truly is. I’m a believer every person on earth has this choice and they have the choice of selecting it to be good or bad. Do you know how I know this, it’s because God’s word tells me?
The greatness of the human nature of mankind is that God gave people a choice to select their human qualities in their lives. A person has a choice of being a servant to God or a servant to sin and disobedience. It’s a person’s choice and they must decide. In the Bible and in Deuteronomy 30:19 it tells people, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before people life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”
People cannot dispute that God’s word tells people the consequences they will suffer without having him in their lives. Its people’s choice and “no-one” else can choose for a person. Deuteronomy 30: 20 tells people, “That you may love the Lord your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave unto him: for he is your life, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swear unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
A person’s human nature doesn’t need to be lived by corruption and death that sin brings in to their life; it tells people in the Bible and in Galatians 6: 8, “For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
When people follow the Holy Spirit of God, a person can look forward to living an eternal life instead of living a life of sin and corruption. A person should put their human nature on God first and foremost; and be there for his purpose to use them as vessels to his works and his word.
A person’s reading of God’s word and having communications with him draws them to be close with him and to take on the purity of God’s divine nature. This is told to people in the Bible and in 2 Peter 1:6, “Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ: grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord; according as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue; whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness.”
A person’s human nature destiny is under their control and it’s up to them to make a choice, I hope this message will be of help in getting the true facts of “human nature.”
