What is Spirituality? by Pastor Melissa Scott

Do you know what a spiritual person is? In New Testament Greek, a spiritual person is literally “the Spirit’s person.” In the Old Testament, God says He “clothed” Himself with Gideon: God put Gideon on and wore him like a garment. A spiritual person is one so possessed by the Spirit that you can truly say, “That person is His.” That is what the church of the New Testament was. The Lord’s, they called them; a simple designation, the Lord’s. We have another phrase in the New Testament, “we have this treasure,” God’s Spirit, “in earthen vessels.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Spirituality is God’s own nature finding an expression through us.

Now, some people do not know how to yield to it. Those who have watched people who are in the Spirit have witnessed the tension that begins to come when they are learning how, and then that breakthrough when the flesh begins to finally yield and flow with the Spirit, and then it flows easily and the struggle is over. This current charismatic renewal is learning you don’t have to tarry and wrestle to get it; you just receive, which is the message.
