God’s Spirit and the Frontiers of Your Soul

Years ago I read Dallas Willard’s phrase “the unexplored frontiers of the human soul” and his encouragement that we go there as pioneers. I want to go there with God. The Apostle Paul joyfully reminds the church in Corinth of God’s gift of the Spirit to take us into the expanse of God’s love, His thoughts, and His free gifts for us.

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined

what God has prepared for those who love him.”

10But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.  1 Corinthians 2:9-12
