Grow as a Spiritual Being

  1. What kind of being are we?

      at)  God created us to be spirit beings.

         Thessalonians 5:23

         May the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely, and may your whole being, spirit, soul, and body, be kept blameless,  

         during  of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ! (KJV)

        

         Genesis 2:7

         The Eternal God formed man from the dust of the earth, he breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being.  (KJV)

         The word used to infuse can also be translated spirit.  So we can see that the "living" part of man is the spirit of  

         the man.  God himself breathed into man.

         John 4:24

         God is Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. (KJV)

         So God breathed his spirit image or likeness into man at creation.

         Genesis 1:26

         Then God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let him rule over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over

         the cattle, on all the earth, and on all the creeping things that crawl on the earth. (KJV)

      b)  We died in our spirit before salvation.

         Ephesians 2:1

         You were dead in your trespasses and in your sins, (KJV)

       vs)  Our spirit becomes alive in Jesus Christ.

         Corinthians 6:17

         But whoever cleaves to the Lord is one spirit with him. (KJV)

         Romans 8:10

         And if Christ is in you, the body is indeed dead because of sin, but the spirit is life because of righteousness. (KJV)

2. Where does this life come from?

    Corinthians 6:19

    Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is  

    in you, which you have received from God, and which you do not belong to yourselves         point to yourselves? (KJV)

    John 6:63

    It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh is useless. The words I tell you  

    I say are spirit and life. (KJV)

3. Who is the Spirit?

    Acts 5:3-4

    Peter said to him, Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart,     

    point  that you are lying to the Holy Spirit, and that you have withheld part of the      field price? If it hadn't been sold, didn't you still have it? And after  

    that it was sold, was the price not available to you? How are you      could put such a plan in your heart? It's not for men        that you lied, but to God. (KJV)

    Romans 8:27

    And he who searches hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,  

    because it is according to God that he intercedes in favor of the saints. (KJV)

 

    Corinthians 12:11

    One and the same Spirit operates all these things, distributing them to  

    each in particular as he wishes. (KJV)

    Ephesians 4:30

    Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, by which you were sealed

    for the day of redemption. (KJV)  

    4. Why do we have the Holy Spirit?

        John 16:7

       However, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; corn,           if I  I'm leaving, I'll send it to you. (KJV)

 

       The Holy Spirit takes the place of Jesus on earth as our closest friend.  For Christians, he is also the Comforter, the One who  

       help us, The Intercessor and The Advocate on earth.  

He is the author of the Bible and therefore he is the most qualified TEACHER

       John 14:16  

       And I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another comforter, that he may dwell with you forever. (KJV)

 

       John 14:26

       But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I have told you.

       (KJV)

      

    5 . Can we still expect something? 

       A Christian is born of the Spirit and can be led by the Spirit, but God wants us to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit.  

       Ephesians 5:18

       Do not get drunk on wine: it is debauchery. Be, instead, filled with the Spirit. (KJV)

 

       John 14:17

       the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; but you, you know him, because he remains

       with you, and it will be in you. (KJV)

 

       John 14:17a

       In the life of the Apostles:  They received the Holy Spirit from Jesus, and had a wonderful experience with the Holy Spirit.

       John 20:22

       After these words, he breathed on them, and said to them: Receive the Holy Spirit. (KJV)

 

       Acts 4:31

       When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled shook; they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with

       assurance. (KJV)

From the Teaching of Jesus:

      John 4:5-14

      He came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the field

      which Jacob had given to his son Joseph. There was the well of   

      Jacob. Jesus, tired from the journey, was seated at the edge of the well. It was  

      about the sixth hour. A woman from Samaria came to draw water.

      Jesus said to him: Give me a drink. For his disciples had gone to the

      city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him:                  How do you, who are a Jew, ask me for a drink, to me who am             a samaritan woman? -The Jews, indeed, have no relations  

      with the Samaritans. - Jesus answered him: If you knew the gift of

      God and who is it that says to you: Give me a drink! you would have him

      even asked for a drink, and he would have given you living water. Lord, he

      said the woman, you have nothing to draw from, and the well is deep; from where

      would you have this living water? are you greater than our father       

      Jacob,  who gave us this well, and who drank from it himself, as well as   

      his sons and his flocks? Jesus answered him, Whoever drinks of this

      water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him

      will never be thirsty, and the water that I will give him will become in him a

      source of water that will spring up into eternal life. (KJV)

 

      John 7:37-39

      On the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus, standing,

      cried, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. The one who

      believe in me, rivers of living water will flow from his bosom, as said

      writing. He says this of the Spirit which those who

      would believe in him; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus

      had not yet been glorified. (KJV)

YES!  There is certainly more to be expected from the Holy Spirit.  The Bible calls this second experience being FILLED with the Holy Spirit.  

  • There is a greater volume of water in a river than in a spring,

  • There is much more power in a river than in a spring.
