Christian Song: Our Human Spirit
Last year I attended one of the college-age gatherings with Christians on Campus. I learned a new Christian song called, Our Human Spirit. The lyrics were directly taken from several verses in the Holy Bible. So I just want to share it with you all. Please note that I obviously did not write this song.
Our human spirit is different than our soul.
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Thessalonians 5:23)
It is the innermost part of our being that is specifically created by God (Genesis 2:7), to contact God (John 4:24).
So here's the song lyrics.
Our Human Spirit
It is in our spirit that we were born again (John 3:6);
it is in our spirit that we were made alive (Ephesians 2:5; Romans 8:10);
it is in our spirit that God has come to dwell (Ephesians 2:22; 2 Timothy 4:22; Romans 8:16);
it is in our spirit we're joined unto the Lord (1 Corinthians 6:17);
and it's in our spirit that we contact and worship God (John 4:24).
Now we must walk and have our whole being according to our spirit -
serving in spirit (Romans 1:9),
praying in spirit (Ephesians 6:18),
being filled in spirit (Ephesians 5:18),
seeing God's revelation in spirit (Ephesians 1:17; 3:5; Revelation 1:10; 4:2; 17:3; 21:10)
having fellowship (Philippians 2:1),
and being built together (Ephesians 2:22).
The spirit is the key to the whole Christian life!
