WALKING IN THE SPIRIT: Your Spirit

image

Listen to Audio

Rom 8:6

Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that v comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].

AMP

Rom 8:6-8

If our minds are ruled by our desires, we will die. But if our minds are ruled by the Spirit, we will have life and peace. 7 Our desires fight against God, because they do not and cannot obey God's laws. 8 If we follow our desires, we cannot please God.

CEV

One of the reasons we fast is because we want to weaken the grip of the flesh over the total man. You are comprised of a spirit, a soul and a body. When you walk in the spirit, what you are doing is walking in the part of you that identifies with the Holy spirit; the part of you that bears witness with the Spirit of God. Because God is spirit, it is not possible for you to use your flesh or physical body to commune or effectively communicate with Him except He becomes flesh. The eyes of the flesh sees only physical things likes the bright sun, a round football etc., but one thing I want you to know today is that you also have the eyes of your spirit. This is the part of you that ought to see and help you participate in the spiritual realm . The spiritual world is said to be more powerful and said to control this physical world. We are not going to discuss today why that is the case by why God has chosen to reveal himself to us through our spirits. Remember that the first Adam was said in  1 Cor 15:45  to be a living being:

Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life]. [Gen 2:7.]

AMP

Since the last Adam is a quickening spirit, the part of you that He quickens is your spirit. The part of you that God regenerated is your spirit.
