“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3:12 NIV
This is how God wants His people to be. So when you see hateful, judgmental, nasty, mean, proud, rough, impatient and selfish believers, you know that they are not living from God’s Spirit, but rather from their sinful nature.
This is an important point, because it is easy for any of us believers in Christ to follow the sinful nature.
-But-, it is also often easy for us to follow the gracious Spirit of God.
