John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.

What is the spirit of man like?

Who owns our spirit?

What does the Bible say?

Genesis 2:7

King James Version

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, 

and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; 

and man became a living soul.

Job 27:3

King James Version

3 All the while my breath is in me, 

and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

Job 32:8

King James Version

8 But there is a spirit in man: 

and the inspiration of the Almighty 

giveth them understanding.

Proverbs 20:27

King James Version

27 The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, 

searching all the inward parts of the belly.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

King James Version

6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, 

or the golden bowl be broken, 

or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, 

or the wheel broken at the cistern.

7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: 

and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Isaiah 26:8-9

King James Version

8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, 

have we waited for thee; 

the desire of our soul is to thy name, 

and to the remembrance of thee.

9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; 

yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: 

for when thy judgments are in the earth, 

the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Zechariah 12:1

King James Version

12 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, 

saith the Lord, 

which stretcheth forth the heavens, 

and layeth the foundation of the earth, 

and formeth the spirit of man within him.

Matthew 26:41

King James Version

41 Watch and pray, 

that ye enter not into temptation: 

the spirit indeed is willing, 

but the flesh is weak.

Luke 24:36-40

King James Version

36 And as they thus spake, 

Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, 

and saith unto them, 

Peace be unto you.

37 But they were terrified and affrighted, 

and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38 And he said unto them, 

Why are ye troubled? 

and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39 Behold my hands and my feet, 

that it is I myself: 

handle me, and see; 

for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, 

as ye see me have.

40 And when he had thus spoken, 

he shewed them his hands and his feet.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

Romans 8:1-2

King James Version

8 There is therefore now no condemnation

 to them which are in Christ Jesus, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus 

hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:5

King James Version

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind 

the things of the flesh; 

but they that are after the Spirit 

the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:6-17

King James Version

6 For to be carnally minded is death; 

but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: 

for it is not subject to the law of God, 

neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, 

if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, 

he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; 

but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him 

hat raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, 

he that raised up Christ from the dead 

shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit 

that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, 

not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: 

but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, 

ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received 

the spirit of bondage again to fear; 

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, 

whereby we cry, 

Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, 

that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; 

heirs of God,

 and joint-heirs with Christ; 

if so be that we suffer with him, 

that we may be also glorified together.

1 Corinthians 2:9-11

King James Version

9 But as it is written, 

Eye hath not seen, 

nor ear heard, 

neither have entered into the heart of man, 

the things which God hath prepared 

for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: 

for the Spirit searcheth all things, 

yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, 

save the spirit of man which is in him? 

even so the things of God knoweth no man, 

but the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 2:12-13

King James Version

12 Now we have received, 

not the spirit of the world, 

but the spirit which is of God; 

that we might know the things 

that are freely given to us of God.

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.

1 Corinthians 2:14-16

King James Version

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 himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, 

that he may instruct him? 

but we have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 6:17

King James Version

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord 

is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

King James Version

19 What? 

know ye not that your body

is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.

1 Corinthians 15:39-44

King James Version

39 All flesh is not the same flesh: 

but there is one kind of flesh of men, 

another flesh of beasts, 

another of fishes, 

and another of birds.

40 There are also celestial bodies, 

and bodies terrestrial: 

but the glory of the celestial is one, 

and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

41 There is one glory of the sun, 

and another glory of the moon, 

and another glory of the stars: 

for one star differeth from another star in glory.

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. 

It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: 

it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. 

There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
