Being Spiritual

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.   You must be more conscious of the inner man than the outer man because the real you is the man inside, the spirit; not the body that we see. The Holy Spirit is the only Person who knows the actual mind of God concerning you. He is like a search engine, searching the database of heaven to reveal the will and plan of God for you.

Every man has a spirit, a soul and a body. The soul and spirit live inside the body. Without understanding you are a spirit you will only focus on your body. Our Spirit makes actually our body alive. Death means separation of the spirit and the body.  (James 2:26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead) The spirit of a man does not die, it lives forever.

Being spiritual means being controlled on the inside by God.
It means you don’t depend in your ability and talent or what you have or look like but you are fully depending on God and be led by the spirit
It means your inner man is developed

Some of us pay much attention to the body and we forget the most important part which is the spirit.
It is very important to work on your inner man. God lives inside you
God is a spirit and He speaks to us from spirit to spirit not our flesh.
If you operate on the flesh it is very hard to hear from God and you can’t have a fellowship with Him.

 When you get born again it is the spirit that is changed.
John 3: 3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. 4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”   

God is a spirit, the only way you can relate to Him and worship Him is by being spiritual.
John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.Whether you lived for Jesus or not determines where your spirit goes, either hell or heaven because the spirit lives forever.
