30 Years Younger and a Full Head of Hair

30 Years YoungerMy wife was in the kitchen and called out, “Do you want anything?

I answered back, “Yes please! I want to be 30 years younger and have a full head of hair!

She replied, “Good luck with that!

Quite honestly, neither of these wants are in my nature, no matter how much I will for them to become true; my nature is to be 50 years old and nearly bald.

What is in the spiritual nature of a man?

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9).

There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God, they have all gone out of the way; they have together become unprofitable, there is none who does good, no, not one (Romans 3:1-3).

The wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Genesis 6:5).

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way (Isaiah 53:6).

The works of the flesh are evident: adultery, fornication uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like (Galatians 5:19-21).

Man’s nature is not to seek after God, to desire Him, nor His salvation. Following the God of the Bible is not the kind of choice a sinner makes, so God intervened in man’s lostness. He appointed some to eternal life (Acts 13:48) from the beginning of time (2 Thessalonians 2:13). To these ones He gives the gift of faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) so they may come to Jesus and be saved (John 6:37, 44).

God undertook for us what we could not by the will of our own sinful natures do for ourselves.
