Human Beings Have Three Parts (2)

Bible Verses

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and operative and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow... 2 Tim 4:22 The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.

Words of Ministry

[Part 2 of 2]
The last two centuries of human history have seen the spectacular rise of the soul's powers. The great minds have contributed an abundance of thought, and technological advancement. The great wills have produced an abundance of decisive action in government and culture. Yet in spite of man's great accomplishments, the sense of inner emptiness remains. We can conquer the moon, but within ourselves there remains some uncharted territory. We can study the world's great philosophies and still not find the answer to the great questions concerning our human existence. We can obtain the highest education and yet remain restless and dissatisfied. Within the soul of man, the search for the meaning of human life will always end in frustration. Hidden and obscured, there is a faculty deep within man that has remained a mystery throughout all the ages. It is deeper than the soul. Just as the life-giving marrow is hidden within the bone, hidden within the soul is the human spirit. The spirit of man was made specifically to contain God Himself, to be filled with God. Man is never satisfied because this deepest part still remains to be filled. Through the mind man is able only to consider God and know God objectively, but through the spirit man is able to contact God, contain God, and enjoy God. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
