Spirit BeingOctober 23, 2014
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thess. 5:23).
You are a spirit.
You have a soul.
And you live in a body.
With your spirit you contact the spiritual world.
With your body you contact the physical world.
And with your soul you contact the intellectual world.
These are the only three realms you contact. There are no more.
Man is a spirit being who was created in the image of God, who is a Spirit (See Gen. 1:26; John 4:24).
You, too, are a spirit being. And it will help your faith to think like that, because faith is of the heart, or the spirit, or the inward man. (The terms "spirit" of man and "heart" of man are used interchangeably throughout the Bible.) Faith is not of the head. Faith is not of the body. Faith is of the heart!
Confession: I am a spirit. I have a soul. And I live in a body. I am a spirit being created in the image of God. With my spirit I contact God. With my spirit I believe God!
