Kingdom Paradigms for Reigning – Are you trying to be Spiritu-al?
Gen 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
1 Thess 5:23 Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 24 God will make this hap-pen, for he who calls you is faithful
Ecc 12:6 Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, be-fore the silver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don’t wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pul-ley is broken at the well. 7 For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.
The creation of humankind is the key highlight of human history and for without it, there is simply no human history! When human be-ings do not understand how God had designed and created us, it has and continue to lead to a host of problems. It behooves Chris-tians who believed that God created us and not through some bi-zarre evolution to understand how we have been created so that we can nurture our lives according to His divine plan.
The question: “Are you trying to be spiritual?” will hopefully be an-swered by a resounding yes which tells us of our desire – which is good! However, if we answer in the affirmative, we have just con-firmed that we do not really understand how we have been made?
The truth is, we do not have to try to be spiritual! Why? We were created as spirit beings indwelling a physical body with a soul! We do not have to try to be spiritual because we are spiritual! Once we understand this truth and how our tripartite being of spirit, soul and body are related, we will know how to express our spirituality.
The divine power to have the full expression of our spirituality is not through our trying to be spiritual but to yield to the Holy Spirit within our spirit. Listen carefully to this sermon today as you will experience a powerful paradigm shift! Amen.
