21 Day Devotional: Day 15: You Are A Spirit.

“God is Spirit: and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24).

You and I are spiritual beings living in a human body, having a human experience.  The part of us that make us “us”, is our spirit and our soul.  It is this part of us that will live on forever in eternity.  Our physical body was created from dust and to dust it will return, it will disintegrate in the ground, or be turned into ashes… but our spirit and our souls will live on.

And, we will either live on with God, or be separated from Him.  Our salvation, my salvation, your salvation guarantees that you will live with God eternally in Heaven, in a new heavenly body.
But, as a spiritual being, God doesn’t desire that you wait until you get to Heaven to live in communion and fellowship with Him, He desires that your spirit and His spirit connect and communicate and dwell together now, on a daily basis.

You cannot see God.  But, you see the things that God created.  You see the sun, the moon, the stars, the plants, the animals, and all things around us.  And the Bible tells us that God created all things, and all things were made by Him and for Him.  The invisibility of God is proven by the things which are visible.  “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,” (Romans 1:20).

The invisible power of God, His Spirit, dwells in you.  Your invisible spirit desires and longs to communicate with the One who created it and gave it life.  There are times when you “feel” something inside of you urging you to say something to someone, to give, to help someone in need, to pray for someone, to call someone, to sing a song, or to lift your hands in worship.  This is the Spirit of God leading you and directing you.  And, as you obey in small things, He leads you to obey in larger things.  Through prayer, and praise, and worship our spirits commune with God’s Spirit, though we may not understand it, He leads us to honor Him by doing physical things like giving, speaking, praying, and helping.

You will also find yourself with a greater desire to know God’s Word.  To study it, and to learn from it, to read it, and to follow it.  This is because your spirit inside of you communes with God’s Spirit and has a relationship with Him.  And, as with any relationship, we desire to know more of the other, to find out what pleases the other, to learn how to build a stronger communication with the other.  We do the same with God.  David put it best when he said “deep calls unto deep” (Psalm 42:7).  The inward part of you desires and cries out for more of God.

Read John Chapter 15.
