Return To The Spiritual-Part 2

Posted By on Sunday, July 10, 2016

Our birth into this world ushers us into a developing state of “sense-relationship” to our environment. Our intelligence and will power directs and controls the activities of each member of our body. Without direction from our mind, our members do not act.

So also, the New Birth brings us into a developing “conscious relationship” to the Lord, and to the spiritual world. In the supernatural realm, Jesus is the Head, and without Him, the members do not act. But the professing Church often seeks useless remedies, neglecting and forgetting Christ, her true Head. Therefore, she has not progressed as far into spiritual maturity as intended.

A child, when born into this world, is helpless and mentally inactive; so also, one born into the Body of Christ is a mere babe in spirituals. Therefore, the need of care and training in spirituals is very great. The Apostle Paul said,

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” Corinthians 12:1

The Church, as a corporate body, is the place of His operation, in which the source of all activity is the power of God manifested through the movement of the Holy Spirit. All power and working of man is therefore an intrusion.

The workings of the Holy Spirit are internal, invisible, and spiritual. But they are not limited, or confined to the inner man. They become outward and visible, as His witness, through the operation of gift ministries.
