Week 2, Day 2

II. Man is a vessel to contain God—2 Cor. 4:7

2 Cor. 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not out of us.

A. A three-part vessel – 1 Thes. 5:23; Heb. 4:12:

1 Thes. 5:23 And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. The body—our physical part to contact the material world.
  2. The soul—our psychological part (which includes our mind, emotion and will) to contact the psychological world.
  3. The spirit—our inmost part to contact God – John 4:24.

Additional verses for reading:

Heb. 4:12 For the word of God is living and operative and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.

Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.

Later, watch the following video podcast sometime during the day.
