Good day to you and welcome back to my blog😊, I hope you’re having a great Sunday. Today’s nugget is a continuation of life is spiritual from last week.
Man is a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body. That means I am primarily a spirit and you are a spirit (sounded creepy to me first time I really thought about it) The body is like a house, to function on earth, you need a body, demon spirits mostly possess bodies in order to operate on earth, for God to operate on earth, He came in bodily form in the person of Jesus Christ. We are born with bodies, when we die, the body is buried and decays but the spirit doesn’t die with the body, it lives on. When my mum passed on last year, this became more real to me, we are more than the reflection that stares back at us when we look in the mirror, we are spirit beings in human bodies, the body dies but the spirit lives on. At mum’s funeral, I told my baby sister, “there is nobody in the casket, it’s just a body, our mum is not in the casket, mummy has passed onto glory, she is with the Lord”.
(Ecclesiastes 2:7 NIV) “and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”
We are more than we are, before his death, Jesus said to the criminal beside him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) This is one of the clear indications that death is not the end for us. Our stay on earth is temporal, we’re passersby, what we do with our stay here on earth is crucial to our destination when we check out of our bodies.
It is easy and very risky to get carried away with things happening around us and loose view of the most important thing in life. The words of our Lord Jesus himself; “What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 6:36 KJV)
So, God is a spirit being, I am a spirit being, he relates with my spirit and he relates with your spirit. Just like you can keep your body in shape, your spirit can be kept in shape and sync with God, the spiritual senses can be sharpened. May we be mightily helped of God never to lose view of the things that really matter in life. Next week we’d look more into keeping our spirit man in shape. So see you soon, child of the Most High God.
