05 July 2023: THE INVISIBLE RULES THE VISIBLE – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18


Our text today talks of the outward man and the inward man. The Bible refers to the inward man as the spirit of a man. How does the inward man look? If the Bible calls him “man” and calls the outward man “man”, it means the inward man will look exactly like the outward man. Whether it is healthy or not, we don’t know, but the inward man will have hands, legs, and eyes. In fact, your eyes are the windows through which the inward man is looking out.

When a man dies, he doesn’t cease to exist. The inward man leaves the outward man and steps out of the natural world into the spirit world. There are testimonies of men that were resuscitated who shared that they saw some people working on their bodies while lying lifeless on the hospital beds. Since their outward man was dead physically, it could have only been their inward man that saw the people working on their lifeless bodies on the hospital beds. That means the inward man has sensations, feelings, and eyes; can see and talk. Some people have submitted that the inward man does speak in such a situation when the physical body is lying lifeless, but no one can hear because the inward man exists in a different world.

The outward man is the physical body.

A tailor can measure the physical body, but there is an inward man the tailor cannot measure. I make bold to tell you that whatever is happening to your outward man reflects what is happening in your inward man.

PRAYER: Holy Spirit, teach me to train and develop my inward man for a thriving Christian life here on earth in Jesus’ name. Amen!

1 Chronicles 1:1-2:17; Acts 23:11-35; Psalm 3:1-8; Proverbs 18:14-15
