(iii) Understanding God Powered by the Holy Spirit
We refer to people as ‘soulless’ when they are cold and unfeeling, programmed to be concerned only for themselves.
Robots are manmade machines, held together by nuts and bolts and powered by a physical energy source. Human beings are created by God, each individual being unique and powered by a soul.
There is however, a group of people who are born of God and powered by The Spirit. What is it that gets you up in the mornings and keeps you through the day? Is it energy, soul or the Holy Spirit?
If it is only physical and mental energy then you are no better than a battery powered robot, when your energy and motivation fails you are done!
If it is soul, you are a bit better but still prone to emotionally debilitating depression that paralyses you when that which your soul loves dies or abandones/divorce you etc.
If you are powered however, by the Holy Spirit you are an unstoppable, conquering over comer. Understand that from God’s perspective a person with only body and soul is dead and only those possessing His Spirit are alive.
God’s understanding of death is different from ours because He said the day Adam ate of the fruit he would die yet Adam lived for hundreds of years. God’s definition of death is not the physical state of lifelessness but the spiritual state of separation from God.
A person in Christ may sleep but can never die, see Matthew 9:24. Jesus and the apostles referred to saints who were physically dead as sleeping, see John 11:11 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14.
Are you cold, unfeeling and deeply troubled, a physical person who is low in soul and void of the Holy Spirit?
Jesus can help, ask Him to save you,body and soul and fill you with His Holy Spirit.
