Perhaps it’s been a long, exhausting journey for you to arrive at the place you stand now, believing that there are beings beyond what your eyes can see and your hands can touch. You may be wondering what you should do with such information; how you can apply it to life.
“But I’m not part of the Spiritual Realm, so what does it have to do with me?”
Actually, you are a part of it
In order to understand this properly, let’s go back to the creation of humankind. You’ve probably heard about it in one way or another. At the beginning of time, God spent six days creating the world. The trees out your window, the clay that was melted to form the tiles of the roof on your house; He made it all. That was the creation of the physical world; the one that you see and touch and feel much more a part of than you do with the Spiritual world.
To end those six days, God made the first man; the father of humankind. You’ve heard of Adam before. When it came time for Adam to be created, God said to Himself:
Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness
– Genesis 1:26
You see, God is Spirit, which is why we can’t see Him. Then He created physical objects, things that we can see. But when He created mankind, He created something that has a physical part and a spiritual part. The physical part of you is your body; the part of you that you can see and touch. And the spiritual part of you? That’s your self; your being, or your soul. That’s the part of you that God was referring to when He said “Let us make mankind in Our image; in Our likeness”.
Here’s what you can do with this information
Enter a relationship with God. Or, if you’ve done that already, invest in it. Having a thriving relationship with your Creator is what He created you to do. It’s the spirit part of you interacting with His Spirit. Ask Him to be the Lord and Savior of your life. He’ll hear you if you’re sincere. Once you’ve done that, there are a few ways that you can interact with Him.
- Read the Bible: that’s how He communicates with you
- Pray: that’s how you communicate with Him
- Go to Church, Bible Studies and meet with other believers: that’s how you learn with and from others who also have a relationship with God
Food for thought
Now I want to leave you with one question. Why do you think God made beings in His own image? God willing I’ll pick up on that thought next week. In the meantime, let me know what you think in the comments below.
