The Power of the Human Spirit
An incredibly powerful Creator made you. The way He made you is equally as spectacular and wonderful. He gave you a core — a human spirit that empowers you to do things that reflect His very nature! He designed you to be amazing and to reflect the wonder of His own creativity and brilliance. He built that into your human spirit — that eternal part of you that is not bound by space and time.
It is the human spirit that causes us to look for something greater than ourselves to worship. It gives us the instinct that there is much more to life than the physical universe.
He gave you a human spirit to enable you to have the capacity to know Him. This is truly mind blowing! This capacity dramatically exceeds that of the human mind. Because of your spirit, you have the ability to interact with the spiritual universe and have an intimate relationship with the Creator himself!
The human spirit does indeed have extraordinary power. When you came to Christ your spirit was made alive to God. What kind of power should that release? The Bible refers to the human spirit as “the spirit of a man” and in some cases calls it the “inner man.” Obviously the term “man” is referring to a person and used in the sense of mankind. Scripture clearly teaches that men and women are equal in value, equal in inheritance and coheirs in Christ. (Any references in this book to “man” is using it in the biblical sense and obviously includes both men and women equally.)
The human spirit is the core and eternal part of every human being. When you understand that your human spirit is the most powerful part of your being, you can discover what life is like when you live from your human spirit in fellowship with God Himself.
Your human spirit has such other-worldly capabilities. It can have fellowship with an eternal and timeless being who created you – God himself! Think about it for a minute. An enormously powerful, perfectly loving Being who lives outside of time and space — that dwells in a realm the human mind does not understand — lives in you!
