Every true believer in Christ has two natures. The first is what he or she possesses as a child of Adam - it is a nature shared by all. The second is that divine life which we now possess as children of God. These are sometimes referred to as our old and new natures - one comes with natural birth, the other with new birth. This subject is not an academic one. If we do not understand that we, as believers, possess a new nature, and that our old nature is dead in God's sight, it will result in a frustrating struggle. Throughout the history of Christianity many a saint has sought to subdue the flesh and eradicate sin, not understanding that it is altogether done with in God's sight, and that he or she can live in the good of a new nature and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Grave disorders existed in the assembly at Corinth, and the they were the reason for the writing of this epistle. The Apostle Paul had been with the Corinthians for 18 months and he surely wouldn’t have allowed such things to carry on when he was there. It is fair to assume, therefore, that things in the assembly at Corinth had deteriorated significantly in his absence. Paul elected to write to the Corinthians regarding the problems in their midst, rather than visiting them in person. Had he gone to Corinth, he would have had to use his apostolic authority as a rod of correction and judge many of them who were at fault. In the epistle, he treats various matters that needed correction in regard to the internal order of the assembly and also its public responsibility. Thus, we are furnished with divine insight for the maintenance of order in a local assembly of Christians. The epistle views the Church of God in its privileges and responsibilities on the earth and presents God’s appointed order for normal function.

Those whom the Lord calls and uses in His service are those who have willingly yielded themselves to Him as His bondmen. They are freedmen; but more than that, they are bondmen....The great fact is that the power of His love makes us willing servants.

“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection…they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years” (Revelation 20:6).

Yesterday we commented that when the Lord Jesus comes back to this world to take His rightful place, He will come as King, and reign for a thousand years. Here in our verse today we see the proof that we will reign with Him. All those who have died in Christ, and those who are alive when He comes, will be taken up and be part of the first resurrection.

While it is true that we shall reign over this world with Christ, it is important to realize that our place will be in heaven. We will not live on earth, but rather will reign over the earth, with Christ. But all this will be done from heaven, for that is our home. God will bring the nation of Israel, and other nations, into blessing on earth. However, as the church—the bride of Christ, our home is heavenly.

The first resurrection consists only of believers. The resurrection of unbelievers will not take place until the end of the thousand years of the millennium, and it will be very sad, for they will be raised only for judgment.

Growing in Grace
“Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).
Everyone wants to have a friend, and be a friend! It’s amazing how many times in the Bible friends are mentioned. There were treacherous friends. We all know the story of Samson and how the woman he loved and thought was his friend, betrayed him. When Judas came to betray the Lord Jesus, Jesus said to him, “Friend, wherefore art thou come?” (Matthew 26:50). And there were good friends like David and Jonathan, or Ruth and Naomi, in the Old Testament, and James and John in the New Testament.
Our verse today is warning us that, if we know the Lord Jesus as Savior, we will not want to have friends who do not love Him too. The “world” as we call those who have not accepted Christ, does not want to talk about Him. And if He is our very best friend, then we do want to talk about Him!
If you were to make a list of qualities you would like to have in a friend, what might it include? Perhaps cheerful, kind, helpful, fun! Would you think to include “someone who is honest with me?” Maybe someone who would kindly tell me when I’m wrong or might be hurting someone’s feelings?
There is a good verse in Proverbs 27:6 that tells us, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend.” No one likes to be wounded. But a good friend may kindly have to do that sometimes. And as a friend, we need to learn how to accept criticism.
Another special quality in a good friend is that they do not gossip about the little secrets we may share. That means we can trust them when we tell them something special that is only between friends. It’s wonderful to be able to pray with and for a friend who has shared a problem he/she may be having.
And here is a final verse to think about, “A whisperer separateth chief friends” (Proverbs 16:28). Let is never be the one responsible for separating friends!

How great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee. (Psalm 31:19)
Since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.1 – Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.2 – Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore.3
How excellent is thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.4
Godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.5

Comfort of the Scriptures
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul” (1 Peter 2:11).
The believer in Christ needs ever to remember that we are on earth as “strangers and pilgrims” and that “our conversation [citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,” and “here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.” We are not only “strangers”—for our Lord said that “they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world”—we are also “pilgrims,” for we are journeying toward heaven and glory. How very much we need the Lord’s help to “abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” Like David, we need to cry, “Hear my prayer, O Lord ... for I am a stranger with Thee, and a sojourner.” Truly, “I am a stranger in the earth: hide not Thy commandments from me.” Remembering our pilgrim character and that “all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world,” then “lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
I am a stranger here on earth,
Journeying to heaven so fair;
Lord, keep me from loving the world
So that it may not be a snare.
