Spiritual Dimension of Life


Why
Must the Spiritual Dimension
Be Addressed First?



The spiritual dimension must be addressed first, because it is impossible to become a whole person without the indwelling of the Spirit of Christ. His function in our lives is to guide us, teach us, help us discern truth from error, and find abiding comfort in Him.

It is this indwelling Spirit of God that makes it possible for us to have faith—which is the significant requirement for wholeness, or completeness in every other area or dimension of our life.

Perhaps you have come to realize that something is missing in your life.

Do you sense that you are adrift in the sea of life and are alone in the world?

Do you long to have God's help, guidance, discernment, and comfort?


Respond to the call of God at this moment, acknowledge your sin and need of the leadership of Christ in your life, turn from going your own way, and commit to following Him and Him alone today.

Then begin learning to recognize His promptings. Start reading God's Word (the King James Version is recommended).


Careful and prayerful study of the Bible will familiarize you with the nature of God and the nature of man.

You will discover what pleases Him and what dis-pleases Him as well as how He responds to His enemies and to those who love Him. Remember, He is love, therefore He has your best interest at heart and desires to help you become all that you were created to be.

By studying how He has worked in the affairs of mankind in the past, we begin to see how He is working today in the world and in our life. The more knowledgeable we become in His Word, the easier it is to discern what is really good and what is really evil, sense His promptings, and follow His direction.
