We consist of the flesh, the spirit, and the soul.
I Thessalonians 5:23 … and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are spiritual beings in a body of flesh. The greatest part of our being is the spirit within. When we grow in knowledge only seeing through the eyes of the flesh, we inhibit our ability and desire to be more fulfilled and enlightened. Our spirit within us can access a greater knowledge of understanding through a higher power. We are influenced by two spirits of the air. The spirit of err influences those focused on the desires of the flesh, selfishness of the heart. The Spirit of God, Holy Spirit, influences those focused on the love in their heart for others. FOCUS ON THE SPIRIT, NOT THE FLESH.
