Who We Are (Deep Stuff)

My husband and I just had a deep conversation (not unusual). We were discussing who we as human beings are, what we are made of, and what changes in our life. And here is our discussion and thoughts summed up. Here goes:

We (people) are comprised of these parts, in this order:

1. Physical body

2. Our mentality and thought processes.

3. Our soul.

4. Our spirit.

When we are born and as long as we remain immature, we stick with thr physical selves, which can be selfish and always is taking care of staying alive and wants and needs. As we grow and hopefully mature in life, we develop and give prominence and power to the mentality, a higher function which considers others around us also and consequences, memories, etc. Then as we further mature and develop, we give prominence and power to our soul, where we have a greater idea of who God made us to be and our connectedness to the spirit, with built in personal identity in the bigger picture of God’s kingdom. And the highest goal of maturity and growth and development is to give prominence and power to the spirit in intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit/Source of Goodness and Love.

We can screw this up by opening the spirit to evil spirits inadvertently and ignorantly (or willingly) via the physical or mentality. We can and so screw it up by remaining immature.

How do we shift to the goal of spiritual prominence and connectedness to the Holy Spirit/Good/Love? We read the Bible and pray and start to incorporate its values into our lives until we can be humble enough to let God transform us and shift us to this new form. And when it happens, it is beautiful.😄❤

Covered by The Blood of Jesus

We who are saved are covered by the blood of Jesus. How it is supposed to work is that we are sinless because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Messiah the moment we humbly accept Him as our Savior. Then we ask Him to forgive our sins and poof, they are forgiven. God is very generous and full of grace. Then, we stay close to Him in humble prayer and Bible reading and worship and living and working for Him and His glory and direction. If we sin then, we go back to God and ask forgiveness. We are covered. Amazing grace!!! It is our job, though, to try not to sin, turn away from doing things that sadden the heart of our Heavenly Father. He gives us ready forgiveness but we need to do n our part. He sure is good to us and His eternal rewards are so worth it. ❤
