The Progression of Christ’s Nature in Us

The divine nature of Christ is progressively created in us. It is erroneous to say we either have His nature fully abiding in us or we don’t. Christ’s nature is formed in us through assimilating Him as the Living Word. An open, honest heart is the fertile ground needed for the Word to be planted in us. The seed then grows accordingly.

16  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Continue reading
