What Is Spirit? (An Inner I-hood)

Your Spirit, Soul and Body - YouTube

My inner real reality is spirit. When the Bible says humans are made in God’s image, that’s what it’s talking about. My spirit is my real “me”.

Jesus said, God is Spirit”; Paul and the author of Hebrews said God fathered our spirits, Hebrews 12:9; and if redeemed, we are “spirits of justified men” when we leave our bodies, Hebrews 12:23. Our human spirit is our “knower,” 1 Corinthians 2:11-14. So here we reach the vital spot.

We are spirit-humans. Spirit means that we have an inner “I-hood” like God’s, which consists in knowing, loving, and willing, John 7:17 and Philippians 2:12,13.
