“I have learned this, at last, by my experiment that if one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams and endeavors to live the life they imagined, they will meet with success unexpected,” Henry David Thoreau.
No doubt the aforementioned worked well for Thoreau and many others, and may it work well for everyone who chooses such a path.
However, here’s a more sure way because when God is involved by ones invocation of Him. Then many pitfalls and false avenues can be avoided.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared that we should walk in them. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (cp. Ephesians 2:10 and Ephesians 3:20).
Like the triune God our Creator, we also are a threesome, body, soul and spirit. It is through our bodies that God gives us life, our soul is our conscience, and its through our spirit that we are connected to God.
But the soul, and spirit are dormant, as are our bodies compared to what the body will be like once we receive our glorified bodies. That will occur in the hereafter. The limitations are because of the choices Eve and Adam made.
So for now, we’ll have to function on a very limited capability. It’s all tied together in those Ephesians citations. But it’s not automatic because one must function within the Christ family. Not there yet, then follow the prompts in, Romans 10:9-10. This is not about church membership. Modern day Christendom is the problem not the solution for the most part.
It’s all about activating the soul and spirit with our bodies. Accomplished when Christ makes alive our spirit, so that God may instill in us wisdom and revelation. Then our eyes are opened with enlightenment, so that we know what is the hope of our purpose. And then, discovering the hope of our calling. It’s all tied together through His inheritance in us. Henceforth, He calls us saints. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).
The foregoing has nothing to do with intellectualism but everything to do with spirituality. It’s a way few travel because doers do it the Thoreau way. But it has its limitations caused by human frailty. The Christ way eliminates human frailties, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It’s accomplished through the well spiritually conditioned saints.
