A Stomach to Receive Spiritual Food

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete... John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him [in relation to drinking the water that He gives] must worship in spirit...

Just as our human life is sustained by eating food and drinking water, so the divine life is received by the way of eating and drinking. For this purpose God has created for man a receiving organ. The organ for us to receive physical food is our stomach. The organ by which we can receive spiritual food and drink is our spirit. God has created a spirit for man, which is designed particularly so that man can receive God. Man's spirit is different from man's body, and it is also different from man's soul. It is a part that is deeper than man's soul and lies hidden within man's soul. The Bible calls this part the spirit of man. Christ as Spirit and life is real today, but He cannot be realized by means of our soul, that is, our mind, emotion, and will. If you try to understand Him with your mind or feel Him with your emotion, you will not be able to experience Him. The proper organ to receive Christ is our spirit. Our spirit is our spiritual digesting organ. With our spirit we can eat and drink Christ as life to us. [An easy way for us to eat and drink of Christ with our spirit is to pray and to read the Bible. We can pray by calling on His name and we can pray with the words of the Bible.]
