The human being is made up of a body, spirit and soul.
- The body is composed of our mind, emotions and our will.
- The spirit of man was given to man (breath of life). We all are born as a natural man. Because of sin, the natural man will not understand spiritual things, this included the Bible. To understand the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ one must be born-again; accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Man’s spirit is weak and deceitful; the carnal man will show forth because our spirit is weak.
- The soul is who we are and what will be judged in heaven on judgement day.
Through the spirit of man, there is our mind, emotions and will. Until man becomes born-again his natural nature, will rise up and will control him. Even as a new born believer, babe in Christ, we may see the carnal nature rise up and control us at times, this is why it is important to keep your mind on the spiritual things of God.
But I have good news. Jesus came to set us free when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. He has promised to give us a new spirit when we accept Him. This new spirit is what you might say is the born-again experience. Christ Jesus in us, His Spirit, a new Spirit leading us into a new life in Christ, in God.
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
Man’s spirit is weak, because of the dominion of satanic power for so many centuries, but God made provision for man to communicate and edify man’s spirit and strengthen the inner man, our mind, our emotions and our will through “tongues” or unknown languages.
Yes, this impartation to man, from the Spirit of God, to the spirit of man, brings supernatural power and strength. Sometimes man cannot articulate and put into words what he wants to say to God but the Holy Spirit knows what is in your heart and how to say it or you might say interpret it to the Father.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
