Man’s current condition is not as it should be. God, in perfect wisdom, created Man in His Image with a delicate balance: spirit, soul, and body. When Adam ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the species changed. Every soul has been infected with Knowledge we were not meant to possess. The Image is out of balance. The spirit of sinful man is dead, cut off from the life of God. The soul dominates reality, yet it is so easily subdued by the flesh’s desires.

Everything about our lives of faith has been impacted by this wrong Tree. Our independent souls must repent and submit to God’s will in order to be born again, receiving a new spirit and the Holy Spirit. The believer’s journey of discipleship means allowing the word of God to divide soul from spirit (Heb. 4:12), so that the Holy Spirit can unpack Christ’s glories into our souls and give understanding of what we have freely received (1 Cor. 2:12).

May we come into divine order with all three parts functioning as God determined. May we become spiritual disciples.
