Should You Strive To Be Only Natural?

If you don’t see the video imbed above, try this link to Steven Curtis Chapman’s Only Natural.

How often have we heard someone excuse their faults saying things like, “I’m only human,” or “That’s only natural?” The implication is that it’s fine to settle for “only.” But God didn’t make us to be “only,” yet without Him that’s all we are.

Only natural.

Instead, He made us to be filled with His Holy Spirit for His purposes. There’s no ONLY about it.
One of the reasons I love this song so much is that it gave me the words to use with my daughter. When she has a “natural” moment, she wonders if she’s an awful person. I tell her, it’s natural. We all do it on occasion. But God wants more both from us and for us, so we should strive to be better. And she does.

So my question to you is, do you want to be ONLY natural?

  1. If we are God's child, we cannot help but be other then natural. The question is how unnatural are we going to be?
