The human being, though tinged by the Fall at the Creation, is born in innocence and moves forward to the spiritual decision point when the Holy Spirit, God's go-between, is invited in to fill that person! A Christian's supernatural nature unfolds beginning with their personal commitment. Saint Paul wrote of the Mystical Body of Christ within himself. In Galatians 2.20 he wrote, "I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me." As the physical body deteriorates, so the inner spiritual nature blossoms. In 2 Corinthians 4.16, he further explained, "Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
