the focus of God's economy is the mingled spirit, the Spirit mingled with our spiritLast week we saw what the focus of the Bible and the center of the universe is, mainly in Romans 8. This week we are going further and deeper to see what the focus of God’s economy is – the mingled spirit. Rom. 8:16 says that the Spirit witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God – there are two spirits. 1 Cor. 6:17 says that he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit – this shows that the divine Spirit has been joined and mingled with our human spirit to become one spirit, the mingled spirit! Praise the Lord, we believers in Christ now have a mingled spirit!
