‘The Spirit of God has made his home in you.’

We are all spiritual beings, whether we realise this or not, but some of us take long years to discover it. Eventually, we can see that every part of our lives is spiritual. Today Paul is speaking about the spiritual and unspiritual sides of being human.

None of us is perfect. Sometimes we stray towards the unspiritual part of our nature. That is when we encounter difficulties which seem insurmountable. Realising we have drifted away from God and are floundering, we can choose to return and focus on the spiritual. We are able to come back to the company of the Spirit of God. Our attitudes will change again and again. We will be at peace, no matter what or how large our difficulty has been. ‘The Spirit of God has made his home in you.’
