Living in the spirit will require walking by faith

The Believers of Jesus Christ who lives by sight, meaning they're limited to the interpretation of their five senses as it relates to our natural world will always be restricted if not stagnated in their spiritual walk.

As Believers in Jesus Christ, we are commanded to walk by faith and NOT by sight. In other words as members of the body of Christ, we are in direct violation of this spiritual law stated in 2 Corinthians 5:7 when we judge or even assess matters from a superficial or physical perspective.

As a body of Believers, our acceptance of Jesus Christ and his works on the cross has to transition us from mere natural men and women (being limited by our five senses) to receiving the Spirit of God whose purpose is to elevate us to greater spiritual understanding along with limitless spiritual experiences.

Therefore, if the Believer does not see him or herself as a new spiritual creation with the Spirit of God dwelling within them, then more than likely they will automatically revert to their usual natural way of living, of course, which is limited to their five senses which are governed by fear.

Walking by faith means to walk or behave according to the laws, principles, rules and protocols of the Holy Bible! In doing so, you are positioning yourself to live, walk and even behave in a manner that must exceed your natural human limitations. Moreover, you are also better position to receive the things of the spirit. Well, according to scripture; the natural man in his attempt to receive the things of the spirit will always conclude the things of the spirit as foolishness, simply because such things are spiritually discerned. On the other hand, the Believers of Jesus Christ who of course have been spiritually regenerated will always see things from their origin no matter how it is presented. The origin of all things are spiritually rooted, and it will always be the process of comparing spiritual things with things of a spiritual nature that will unveil the mysteries to our natural problems.

Thus, the following scripture, "13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 2:13-15

Live according to the scriptures if it is your intend to live beyond your limited and restricted human limitations.
