Flesh and Spirit

Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again. The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit’”. John 3:5-8

To be whole or complete, you can’t have flesh without spirit. You also cannot have a spirit without flesh. But to enter the Kingdom of God, that spirit must be empowered by the Holy Spirit and our flesh. It should become the dwelling place for Him. It is only human to seek fulfillment. To settle for anything less, is to leave us only half a person. Is that fair to say? Until that union is complete, we are not equipped to enter the Kingdom of God.
