Though we have come into this world lacking both spiritual and physical maturity, our spirit is still “of” the Father. We are life-forces that are to manifest the true nature and power of our Father. The body in which we live takes on life by the very substance of the Father from which we are. Always keep in mind that you are His offspring in spite of the fact that your flesh nature drives you to be only concerned with the tangible part of you. Get acquainted with “your” true spirit, your true self; you might discover that the real you has great potential if given more attention to your Heavenly Father. Christ said that the spirit gives life while the flesh does not have the ability to give life (John 6:63). Paul reminds us, saying, “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” (Rom. 8:5).
