The Spirit with Our Spirit

Romans 8:16—“The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.”

Note 2 on our spirit says: “This reveals that the Spirit of God today, the all-inclusive Spirit of the Triune God, dwells in our regenerated human spirit and works in our spirit. These two spirits are one; they live together, work together, and exist together as one mingled spirit (1 Cor. 6:17). See John 3:6; 4:24; and notes there.”

Cross-reference “b” on spirit directs us to these verses:

Zechariah 12:1: “The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Thus declares Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens and lays the foundations of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him.”

Job 32:8: “But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.”

Proverbs 20:27: “The spirit of man is the lamp of Jehovah, searching all the innermost parts of the inner being.”

  1. “But there is a spirit in man.” What a clear word from the Bible concerning our spirit.

    Thank you for pulling out the helpfulness of the cross references!

  2. I really like Proverbs 20:27. The spirit of man is the lamp of Jehovah to contain God as the light, and this lamp searches all the innermost parts of the inner being.
