…even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. Joh 14:17 ESV
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, but not just the body, also the soul and the spirit. Right there in my spirit (my “heart” or deepest being), where God alone knows me, HIS Spirit takes up residence. How it works we don’t know, but according to the Bible something spiritual happens when we belong to God. Spirit-communion takes place, as it where, between God and me. This is something that unbelievers do not have! It’s important to know that faith and Christianity is more than the rational acceptance of certain beliefs. No, it doesn’t just function on the soul level (reason, emotion and will), but deeper, on the spirit level. From the very center God wants to take control, through his Spirit! There, in our innermost being, he wants to work his change: to form in us a “new heart and a new spirit”, according to the Bible. That is what it means to give your “heart” to God.
Heavenly God, I give you my heart. Move in through your Spirit and take control. Change my life! Amen.
Give your whole heart to God!
