2017 – FRIDAY 27 OCTOBER
THE HUMAN SPIRIT
When you understand why God created you with a human spirit – it makes you all the more passionate about having Him live within you.
1. YOUR SPIRIT IS EVERLASTING
Your spirit is your link with the eternal realm of God.
When you are born – you are born into Adam’s sin – and your spirit is dead to God.
However it is still everlasting – but without God’s eternal life. Therefore it will be forever in darkness and death.
Everlasting – means forever.
Eternal – means God’s source of life – through faith in Jesus Christ.
2. YOUR SPIRIT IS DESIGNED AS A THRONE ROOM
Your human spirit is a throne room. We are spiritual beings designed to house a spiritual God within.
Your spiritual throne room must accommodate a king.
Someone needs to sit on the throne of your life.
3. YOU CHOOSE WHICH KING SITS ON YOUR THRONE
A. Your creator God fits your throne room perfectly.
It is the ultimate in wisdom – to allow God to rule and reign over all things – from your throne room.
B. The fallen angel – the devil – desperately wants to occupy your throne room. He will promise you anything if you will allow him access to your throne room.
It is the ultimate in self destruction to allow the devil access to your throne room.
C. Your own ego wants to sit on your own throne. You make yourself a God when you attempt to occupy your own spiritual throne room. You are not a god – you are a created being – so this is impossible.
It is the ultimate in folly to consider yourself a god.
4. YOUR THRONE ROOM IS DESIGNED FOR GOD’S HABITATION.
God designed you to be like Him. He even created your spirit to be His habitation.
In Him is eternal life.
Do yourself a favour and invite God to come into your throne room – and rule your life.
His way is perfect for you.
5. THRONE ROOMS ARE FOR AUTHORITY
God has designed His throne room in the spirit of every human being.
When you allow Him to occupy your spirit – through forgiveness in Christ – you also welcome His rule of life.
God does not sit on the throne of your life as a token monarch.
He is a benevolent dictator and His commandments must be obeyed.
Humble yourself and allow God to rule your life.
