There are three types of people on the planet: a natural person, a spiritual person and a carnal person. Which you are will determine your life and eternity.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
1 Corinthians 2:14-15 People who aren't spiritual can't receive these truths from God's Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can't understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things
Read - 1 Corinthians 2-3
The natural person is someone who has no ‘supernatural’ ability to trust God. They don’t have faith and can’t understand anything spiritual. The spiritual person is the person whose spirit has been made alive in Christ by faith in Jesus. The carnal (worldly) person is a person who has been made alive in Christ but their growth has been stunted. They must be bottle-fed the things of God until they surrender to His Spirit in a more complete way.
Lord, I will grow by Your Spirit into a mature Christ-follower.
When Mended by the blood of Jesus we become spiritual people. Not longer bound by our natural and sinful pasts, we can grow into maturity in Christ as the Holy Spirit Morph’s us into His likeness. However, when we don’t participate with the Holy Spirit we get stuck in a carnal and worldly mindset rather than letting that Morphing affect our Mindset, our Motivations and ultimately the Ministry of our lives.
