Welcome to New Life International School of Pneumatology. We are studying the course “Man the Spirit”, and in this lesson are discussing the usages of the words, ‘heart and spirit’ in the Book of Romans. These words can be used interchangeably, can mean the literal heart, the soul, or the recreated spirit. Knowing the dimensions of yourself as a spirit, possessing a soul and living in a body go a long way in determining the usage in any given Scriptures. Also, distinguishing the old creation and the new, those who are born again and those who aren’t. In Romans 6:17 Paul was pleased with the Romans because they ‘obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine’ which was given them. Obeying from the recreated spirit is essential to Christian Victory.
