SPIRIT – SOUL – BODY
Every human is made up of three basic parts – spirit, soul, and body. Also there is a spirit, soul, and body order of things. Without getting these three parts in the correct order, there will not be a completeness / wholeness in any of the three areas individually. But if you get the order correct, then your whole being improves and every area of your life, including health, will improve.
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23
“For as the body without the spirit is dead….” James 2:26
- WE ARE SPIRIT, SOUL, AND BODY
- TO GET ANY AREA OF OUR LIVES CORRECT, FIRST WE HAVE TO GET THESE 3 AREAS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
FIRST THINGS FIRST, THEN NEXT
We have to recognize that we need to feed our spirits first. To recognize God in our lives and the fact that He made us and knows what is best for us is the first step to feeding our spirit.
You do not have to do anything other than seek Him and His Will for you. The Word says to “draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you.” Nothing fancy about it, just go to Him just as you are and He will be there waiting for you. He is a good Father and He wants you to walk in abundant life and abundant health. His purpose is not for you or anyone to be sick or in bad health. He loves His children and all He wants us to do is recognize who He is, and then apply His principles for better health and life.
Now we have to feed our soul. Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions.
Once you start feeding your spirit and get in tune with your creator, you automatically start to feed and “RENEW” your mind, will, and emotions.
Feed, or put in, your mind good things, positive things. The Word of God is full of good and worthy things that will renew your mind, will, and emotions. Remember, it is absolutely your choice whether or not you gain control over these and whether or not you progress in your health and your life.
Our bodies follow. Once we recognize the importance of putting God first in our health, then choose to renew our mind, will, and emotions towards the good things, then our bodies automatically start responding with positive results. God designed our bodies to respond positively to speaking, thinking, and acting “right.” He set it all up so we can control our bodies. But we have to first make sure we get the correct order of things – spirit, soul, then body.
