Word for Today:  December 10

Spirit, Soul, Body


When you became Born Again the King of kings and the Lord of lords Recreated your human spirit and gave it power to rule and reign with Jesus through the power of His Righteous Nature.

The new birth experience is compared to the Old Testament rite of circumcision.

For he is not a Jew which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew which is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit…  Romans 2:28-29

Just as there is a cutting away of the flesh in physical circumcision, there is a cutting away of the flesh in the Circumcision of the heart.  The sword of the Word cuts away and removes forever the sin nature in us and we are made righteous.  We do not have two natures… we have one nature… and that nature is the Nature of Christ.

But he that is JOINED unto the LORD is ONE SPIRIT… I Cor 6:17


Just as spirit was dead to God before the New Birth so was our mind darkened and blinded because of sin.  It was bound and limited to operate by reason, emotion and sense knowledge.

As our spirit was Quickened (made alive) and joined to the Lord, our soul (mind, will and emotions) was also joined to Jesus.  As our Spirit took on the image of Jesus Christ our mind (soul) became the mind of Christ capable of thinking God thoughts and storing up Word Truth.

For who hath known the mind of the LORD that He may instruct him?  But we have the MIND of CHRIST…  I Cor 2:16


Our unsaved physical body also functioned in slavery, darkness and bondage to sin.  Its appetites and desires were unchecked and undisciplined.  It was subject to satan’s dominion and destined to die.

But now we are:

Members of His Body, of His Flesh, and of His Bones…  Eph 5:30

Our physical body has become the Temple of the Holy Spirit.

What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which (who) is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s… I Cor 6:19-20

Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  I Cor 3:16

We are a New Creation
