God created us as a triune being of body, soul and spirit. Our senses keep us aware of our body. Our mind and emotions keep us aware of our soul. However our spirit is dead till it becomes alive in Jesus. When we become born again of the Holy Spirit our spirit is born again. The Holy Spirit comes and dwells in our spirit. Now we become aware of another in us who can communicate with us. Once the Holy Spirit was outside us preparing us and leading us to repentance. When we repented and turned away from our sin, we were renewed and became a new creation. We now have access to our Father in heaven through Jesus. There is only one mediator between God and man. His name is Jesus.
Now that our spirit is alive we can perceive Jesus talking with us. He communicates with us through words, dreams and visions. All the nine gifts of the Spirit become active within us. We experience a new power through His Spirit within us. We yearn to know Jesus and follow Him. We become transformed through His presence within us. The more we listen to His voice, the more we become like Him. We are being transformed from glory to glory. This is a personal relationship with Him. We long to live in His presence for there is nothing else that matters now that we know Him. This is a relationship made in heaven that we can now live on earth.
Jesus often speaks through His still small voice. We get more sensitive to His voice within us. He reveals His thoughts to us and we experience His joy and peace within us. We begin to walk according to His commands because He is our Commander in Chief. He gives us solutions to our daily problems and challenges. He meets our every need from His resources in heaven. In this way we become more like Him. We take the form of who we imitate. The more time we spend with Him, the more we will become like Him. His Spirit within us outworks His desires through us. In this way we establish His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
