Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. – Galatians 5:24 (NIV)

What does the apostle Paul mean when he says we need to crucify the sinful nature? In order to experience grace, we must first become aware of death – death to our abilities, to our resources. It is when we realize that we can’t help ourselves that we come to grips with the need for God’s grace, and thus, His power. When we realize that the work of the Holy Spirit is a death process to our abilities, hitting the bottom can be the best thing to happen to us!
