(Genesis 2:7) God first created man. He formed him from the ground and then breathed the ' breath of life' in his nostrils which became man's spirit, came contact with the man's soul is produced.
Hence the soul is a combination of man's body and spirit that's why the scripture calls a man a living soul. ( John 6:63) It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Do not confuse the Holy spirit with the spirit of a man. The Holy spirit is the power of the living God, the spirit of sonship, the spirit of truth. The spirit of man is the innermost part of a man inside the soul.
Every man is born with a body, soul and spirit in the likeness of God whether Christian or not. But not all have their being in God. ( Job 33:4) The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
The Almighty God breath gives me life, it's not that's God's own life we receive in the new birth experience but we have our being in him.
