Spirit Soul and Body
Spirit Soul and Body
By Wayne McDonald

1Thesssalonians 5:23 “And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you from profane things, and make you pure and wholly consecrated to God. And may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)”.

God is three parts. He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It makes sense that what He created in His image would also have three parts. You are a spirit that is the real you. You possess a soul. in your soul is your mind, will and emotions. Your mind tells you how you think your will tells you what you want and your emotions tell you how you feel.

You are a spirit having an earthly experience. When you received Jesus as your savior. Your spirit got born again and you were justified. It is your spirit that has been made holy. Your soul is going through a process called sanctification. Justification took place immediately. But sanctification is a process. To day God sees you as a justified man.

2Cor 5:17 Your sprit has been reborn. Old things are past away and all things have become new. You are not who you used to bee. Even if once in a while the old you tries to stick it’s head up. Live your life from your born again spirit that knows no limits.
