The First Gate: Spirit
The spirit, or the heart, is the true you. It is that you that represents the core and inner dimension of your entire being, your basic nature. Proverbs 4:23 tells us to, guard our hearts above ALL else, for from the heart flows the springs of life.
Every born-again man is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and the substance of that temple are the 4 Gates: the spirit, soul, body, and trophies. The heart is more precious than the other three gates, so greater care must be given to developing it and girding it for the trials and issues of life.
The Purpose of this page is to facilitate the spiritual growth of men (and actually anyone interested in growing in Christ through education) by creating a portal to sound Biblical instruction.
