Physical Vs. Spiritual
Is the physical world or the spiritual world bigger, greater and more powerful?The physical world operates within the five senses – touch, sight, sound, taste and smell. The spiritual world has no physical limitations. The spiritual world is unseen and thus not perceptible by the senses of the physical realm.
God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). John 4:24
God breathed life into the nostrils of man. Life is in the spirit. God created all the heavens and the earth.
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh (physical) gives birth to flesh (physical), but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again (in the Spirit).’ 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.” John 3:5-8
For the born-again believer the Spirit which resides in you is the same Spirit which raised Jesus from the dead. It is the same Spirit that God breathed into man who was formed from the dust of the ground. Life is in the Spiritual realm. The Spirit is the life-giving part of your body. When the spirit leaves, the body dies. Life is in the Spirit, not in the flesh.
Your old nature is gone which seeks to satisfy the flesh (physical); the new born-again nature filled with the Holy Spirit is immersed and washed in the blood of Christ Jesus. Your thinking, emotions, five senses and body are not born again. They must be formed and renewed by God’s word into conformity with the Spirit of God living in you.
The Spirit in you bears the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, gentleness, kindness and forgiveness.
The Spiritual world is bigger, greater and more powerful than the physical world. The Spirit of God in you is greater than the world outside you. The Spirit in you has conquered sin and death.
