I was told once, well more than once if I am to be honest that I am a happy soul. I was never sure what was really meant by that compliment but I guessed it was because of my presentation and attitude. I smile a lot, I am a bit of a jester, always finding a joke in whatever people tell me, except when doing that wouldn’t be right. I find that this way that I have is due to where I was born and lived, Liverpool. People from Liverpool do have a strong sense of humour according to what others tell me. I am inclined to agree. I feel sorry for those who live out their lives without having a sense of humour or wear such a badge with pride. Also if we cannot laugh at ourselves we lack something. People who can laugh at themselves, don’t take themselves too seriously and are accordingly more easy to get on with, unless you don’t have a sense of humour. What makes us who we are? Is it simply the way the ‘chemicals’ in our brain operate? I think not. We are not simply beings of the flesh, we have spirit but what is spirit? People talk about the spiritual realm but more often than not they are referring to the occult, black magic, mysticism, ghost and such things. Halloween seems to be centred around such beliefs. The spirit of a person is who they are and will be when they depart from their fleshy bodies because the spirit of a person is not reliant on their flesh. Spirit precedes life and remains when life has died. If you believe in the supernatural or in the occult you must believe in the spirit world. If you believe in God the same principle applies, in fact God is spirit. So if your spirit is not a product of your flesh then where did it come from? It came from the One who made it….God……..and it will be to Him where it will return and be judged. If God cast out some of the angels from Heaven He is capable of doing the same with our spirit too. How can that be avoided? God in His infinite wisdom, love and compassion made it possible through Jesus Christ because we are helpless and cannot be safe (saved) without him. Think about your spirit and where it will be when you die then place your hope and trust in the ONLY one who can save you, Jesus.
