THE HOLY SPIRIT
It is quite evident that men are generally more conscious of the outer or outermost person, and they hardly recognize or understand their inner spirit at all.
Watchman Nee, the author of The Release of the Spirit has correctly identified the Bible reference of man’s inner spirit or the inner man (person); he calls man’s soul (psyche) the outer man (person) and for the body he uses the term, the outermost man:
“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being.” Ephesians 3: 16
We may be able to mouth the word, “Not my will but Thine be done,” but how often do we really allow the Lord to take over when things happy.” The person who loves his life will lose it, while the person who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. “ John 12:25
