SPIRIT - SOUL - BODY

Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the SPIRIT.
2 For the law of the SPIRIT of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the SPIRIT.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the SPIRIT the things of the SPIRIT.”

But, wait…a change has been made,
Our life completely turned around;
Our SPIRIT has been “quickened”,(Ephesians 2:1)
We are Spirit-beings…Heaven bound!

Now, we’ve got it right,
Our true life is in the SPIRIT;
All else shall pass away,
All else has its limit!

The SOUL is just the middle ground,
Where everything is worked out;
Mulled-over and digested,
Where we see what it’s all about.

And, what we’ve learned,
Is now on full display;
In our BODY…as we go about,
Living…each and every day.

But wait…a change has been made,
Our life completely turned around;
Our SPIRIT has been “quickened”,(Ephesians 2:1)
We are Spirit-beings…Heaven bound!

We’ve been birthed into His family,
No longer I…but Christ within;
No longer my life…’tis His life,
Life in the SPIRIT now begins!

Our focus is now on the eternal,
The place where SPIRIT dwells;
The place of no beginning and no end,
Where all His mysteries…He tells.

His Holy SPIRIT is the very center,
Our real life comes from Him;
Daily leading us…guiding us,
Comforting…as we journey on with Him.

But wait…a change has been made,
Our life completely turned around;
Our SPIRIT has been “quickened”,(Ephesians 2:1)
We are Spirit-beings…Heaven bound!

Our SOUL is being changed,
No longer my mind…but the mind of Christ;
Always desiring to please my Father,
My own wishes…sacrificed!

My will becomes…to do His will,
In every thought, word, and deed;
To follow His leading every day,
And, to His voice…heed.

And, emotions…now stabilized,
Holy Spirit…controlled;
Just compassion and empathy,
And, lots of Love…unfurled.

But, wait…a change has been made,
Our life completely turned around;
Our SPIRIT has been “quickened”,(Ephesians 2:1)
We are Spirit-beings…Heaven bound!

Now, we’re really on the way,
This change is being seen;
Our BODY glorifying God,
We’re not what we have been!

When others see our way of life,
No longer the façade;
They see the real…the genuine,
Where, once we were so cold…so hard.

The Love of God is being seen,
To His Love…they are drawn;
Our life speaks louder than any words,
By His Love…we all are drawn.

But, wait…a change has been made,
Our life completely turned around;
Our Spirit has been “quickened”,(Ephesians 2:1)
We are Spirit-beings…Heaven bound!
