Week 2, Day 6

C. The three functions of the spirit:

  1. Fellowship—the function to worship and contact God; our communion with God – John 4:24; 1 John 1:3; 2 Cor. 3:18.

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

2 Cor. 3:18 But we all with unveiled face, beholding and reflecting like a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord Spirit.

  1. If we exercise these three functions in our daily life and obey the sense of life and peace within (go in peace—Luke 7:50) we will be walking according to the Spirit in a practical way, thus receiving more dispensing of God Himself as life into us – Rom. 8:4, 6.

Romans 8:6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.

Extra verses for reading:

1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:4 That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.

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 short video podcast sometime during the day.
