God created us in His image. He created us by His Spirit and we are whole in Him. We live in a body and operate through our mind, emotions and will. This is how we understand ourselves although we are not parts but one whole being. We have different functions in our various parts. Our body perceives things through our senses. Our soul processes the information through our thoughts and feelings and we implement actions through our will. The spirit in us was dead through sin but now through the new birth has been born again. Our spirit was redeemed from the curse of the law through Jesus who was cursed for us on the Cross. Now we are free to be like Him.
Being born again is just the beginning. We once were lost in sin and wandered away from God. Now through His grace and mercy He bought us and brought us into His fold. We are now part of His Kingdom. However we have a choice to walk according to the Spirit or according to our flesh. To walk according to the Spirit is life and walking according to the flesh is death. God is calling us to be filled with the Spirit and to walk in the Spirit. He sent His Holy Spirit to fill us and to help us in our walk. He renews our mind according to His word and His Spirit transforms us. Now we can speak His word and produce life. God spoke and He created the universe. We can speak His now rhema word and see the impossible become possible.
Walking in the Spirit is to live each day in the Spirit and not in the flesh. This is our right. However the world and the devil will tempt us away from walking in the Spirit. This is the battle we have to face each day. Only in the Spirit can we overcome. Now we need to be filled to overflowing to be victorious in our walk. Like the lame man who was healed and went walking and leaping and praising God (Acts 3:1f), so also we need to do the same. We will do this till God delivers us from this temporary house we live in. We have an eternal dwelling place in Him. This is our destiny and no one can take it away from us.
