Our original personality was born into sin and only by the infusion of the Holy Spirit can we be returned to the original personality that is like the Father. Because of the Grace given and the Baptism and Infilling of the Holy Spirit, we are promised “His divine power” and “His divine nature” and “everything pertaining to life and godliness,” writes the apostle Peter.
“In order that you might become partakers of the divine nature…”
Apply all diligence
In your faith, supply moral excellence
In your moral excellence, knowledge
In your knowledge, self-control
In your self-control, perseverance (resolve)
In your perseverance, godliness
In your godliness, brotherly kindness
In your brotherly kindness, love.
“for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you”
This is obviously a new and supernatural personality.
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” Jesus
