The Bible teaches that we consist of body, soul and spirit: “May your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus” (I Thessalonians 5:23). Our material bodies are evident, but our souls and spirits are less distinguishable.
The Bible teaches that when someone repents of sin and believes in the gospel, the Holy Spiritguides them into all truth and promotes spiritual growth. In the New Testament this is often referred to as “new birth”—so called because of Jesus’ teaching that one must be born of the Spirit in order to receive salvation.8 This new birth, generated by the Holy Spirit, not only saves one’s soul but also motivates one to obey God and thus begin the spiritual journey.
The Bible has much to say about a proper spirituality. … Rather, the term “spirituality” as applied to biblical faith is here understood to refer to that relationship between God and man that can be summed up under four headings : holiness, the gift of the Spirit, life in the Spirit and the discipline of the Spirit.
John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
Biblical spirituality can be defined as the process of the divine restoration and healing of the broken relation between the Triune God and humanity. As such, biblical spirituality is the response of a repentant human heart and mind to the loving heart and mind of God (1 Cor 2:12-‐13; Rom 8:14).
