Part 2

You and I were created to give and receive love

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Genesis 1:26-27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion …. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

God is a Spirit, He created you and I in His image, and in His likeness. That means we are a spirit just like Him. We are His children. We came from Him. Whatever He is that’s who we are. We are His family. He values us, and loves us unconditionally.

Genesis 2:7 “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.”

Soul= Mind, will, emotions, thoughts, feelings.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Word of God can help us identify who we are. Only the Word of God can reveal the difference between who we are (the spirit), our soul, our body, and our heart?

Spirit: This is who we really are! Breath, sprit, the rational soul.

Soul: Psuche: The soul or breath of life The immaterial invisible part of man, the seat of personality, the seat of the sentiment element in man, that by which he perceives, reflects, feels, desires, the seat of will, purpose, and appetite. Mind, will, emotions, feelings, thoughts and intentions.

Joints and Marrow: Body

Heart: Kardia Stands for man’s entire mental and moral activity The heart is used figuratively for the hidden springs of personal life. It is the thoughts or feelings, mind, the middle. Fleshly tables of the heart (the eyes of our understanding). It is the mind, will, emotions, thoughts, feelings, reasons, and intentions.

Believe with your heart the middle part or core of our soul. The hiding place of our spirit.

There is a difference between our conscience thought and sub consciousness thoughts.

Heart is very sensitive
Like reception on your phone or TV
Heart is very powerful yet very fragile

Proverbs 4:20-23 (Amplified) “My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”

My son attend to my Words, Incline your ears unto my sayings.
We must give God and His Word our full attention
When we do this, it enables us to hear what He’s saying

Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
The spoken Word of God!
That’s when Faith comes. When we hear what He is saying to us personally.
Your perception will change in your heart. That’s where faith is formed

Adam and Eve should have guarded and protected their heart!

Genesis 3:1-10
Eve not shocked that a snake was talking to her
Before the fall man used 100% of their brain
They communicated with animals
We were created to take dominion
We are intricately created!

Why did the curse come onto the snake

Genesis 3:14 “Because thou hast done this…”
What did the serpent do?
He allowed Satan access into his soul, his mind will, thoughts and reasoning’s.
Satan was hiding in the animal’s soul.

Did chart of: body soul and spirit
Created with boundaries and needs

Physical Boundaries and Needs

Heart Boundaries and Needs
Feel Unconditional Love
Feel Safe and Secure
Feel Valuable, and validated.
Feel a sense of destiny or purpose.

1 John 4:8 “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love”.
God is love
So God communicates love
You and I are love, because we were created in His image and likeness.
You and I were created to love God, and receive love from Him.
You and I were created to love others, and receive love from others.

5 ways God created communicates love to you: Five love languages.
Acts of Service
Gift Giving
Quality time together.

These love languages are the ways God designed to meet those soul needs.

God created us as a family
And a family was designed by God to meet and assit in communicating these love needs to each other.
Adam and Eve ware created to fill the love needs for each other.

From scriptures what was their love language?

Genesis 3:1-6 “And the serpent said unto the woman… and gave also unto her husband with her;”
Eve= Talk
Adam= gift giving
