We are made of spirit, soul and body. Our spirit is specifically listed first in this passage of First Thessalonians, as it is our spirit that is to have dominion and authority over our soul and body. Much of our culture places an emphasis on the soul that is made of our mind, will and emotions and the nurturing of our spirit is often neglected.
From time to time, I’ll post Spirit-to-Spirit Blessings. The purpose of these blessings is to strengthen your spirit with the Fruit of the Holy Spirit in order to be effective in warfare against the enemy.
