Body, Soul and Spirit


We are made up of three parts: body, soul and spirit. Our physical body is made from the dust of the earth. Our spirit is born of God. This is where we are the image and likeness of God. Then we have a soul, which is the life of God that brought together our body and spirit. With these three parts, we become a whole human being. Our body is made from the cursed earth and fights against God. Our spirit is our mind, will and intellect. It is immortal and looks like God. For us to become like God, we have to have faith, trusting and believing God. This is the only way for our spirit man to control our physical body. Faith has to be real to be effective. God gives each of us gifts. These gifts are part of our lives, whether or not we serve God. There are people in the church that look, talk and walk like Christians. They can quote the bible and do many good works in the church. But there is no faith. God calls them wolves in sheep’s clothing. They have no faith in God. Jesus talked to the disciples about this very problem. He said that many will come and say, Lord, Lord. Jesus will reply and say, depart from Me, for I never knew you. This is about belief and unbelief. You can only believe with your spirit or heart. It is time to check your heart for belief. Because once you die, it is all over but the crying. If you don’t believe on this side, you won’t make it into heaven. Faith in God is where you start and it can take you home. Believe and trust God with your life.
