The Threefold Nature of Man Chapters 5 & 6

The real you, the part that is made new in your spirit man. This is the part the will live forever. The part that receives eternal life. 

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
— John 10:10

The word "life" in the scripture above translates to the word zoe which means the God kind of life. Your life is to be the zoe life. Zoe is the God kind of life, the way He designed it. God is love and when your spirit is recreated it is filled with love and the capacity to love. 

The Holy Spirit communes with your spirit to teach, train, convict, restore, and change you into the image of Jesus Himself. 

"We must learn to let our spirits dominate our minds if we are going to be successful Christians. To walk by faith means to walk by the Word and to let our hearts and the inward man control us."
