The real deal (how spiritual are you? Part 6)

What is true spiritually? What is the spiritual activity that really speaks of our true identity and actually connects us with the God who created us?

I think a good definition comes from 1 Cor 2: 12

Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. (ESV) 1 Cor 2: 12

What have we been given by God? All Paul is talking about and thinking about is in verse 2

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (ESV) 1 Cor 2:2

God has given us his son, to be crucified.

True spiritually can therefore be defined as:

knowing by the Spirit of God what we have been freely given in the Son of God.

There are two aspects of true spiritually that I have been thinking about. First, true spiritually is Jesus centered and second true spiritually is Holy Spirit empowered.
