“The Spirit of Man Makes Him a Human Being 人的靈使他成為人“（1 Corinthians 哥林多前書 2:9-11）
However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ – the things God has prepared for those who love him – these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
God the Creator is the ‘I AM’ who is not derived but self-existent, high over all, ancient of days and dwelling in light unapproachable. Man, though privileged beyond all other, is still but a creature. ‘The spirit of man’ is the man’s deep-in human entity, the essence of his being ‘I am’ which is derived from God and dependent upon His creative fiat for his continued existence. Man’s knowledge of God is by the direct impression of the Spirit of God upon the spirit of man that gives himself self-knowledge. What makes man a human being is his spirit in which the image of God originally lay.
Prayer: God our Creator, you rule and reign from your throne in heaven but dispensing love and mercy to all who turn to you through your Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. May your holy name, all you represent, be held in honour and awe, as you deserve. May everything we are and do speak of your glory/perfection, faithfulness and total care on earth as they are in heaven. Amen.
