How Are Humans A Three Part Being?
Many secular songs talk about people having bodies and souls. It’s clear that to live on this earth you’ve got to have a body. However, people don’t understand that we are spirit beings. Our body is just a shell, it is just for a time. Something better is coming.
Humans are spirit-beings made in God’s image. Genesis 1:27 says we are made like God. That means God has hands, a head, legs, torso, eyes and so forth. Your body has been modeled after Him. God is not some nebulous force of energy. God is not electricity. God is a personality that loves us all so much. God is love, God is the most powerful being you can know. He is bigger than big. He is more kind than the kindest person you know. He is more perfect than the most well-meaning person you’ve ever met. God is Holy. We cannot approach Him without Jesus to make us right (John 14:6).
What Are You Made Of?
We must understand that our body is made of the earth, clay. The last breath you take is the time your spirit leaves your body. When you leave your body, you will either go up or you will go down. Up is better. You will either head to Heaven, or you will be eternally separated from Him in hell. You inhabit your body. A good way that describes the who man is
I am a spirit, I have a soul, and I live in this body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 says the complete man is made up of spirit, soul, and body (that means women too!). Hebrews 4:12 says that our spirit and soul are inseparable. However, we know that when we stop breathing we leave behind our bodies.
Besides being a spirit, having a soul, and living in your body there is something else that will help you better understand yourself. Your soul area is your mind, your will, and your emotions. When you accept Jesus, your spirit becomes new. Romans 12:2 says that Christians must not conform to the world, but must transform themselves by renewing their mind. By changing the way they think through studying, praying, and mediating the Word of God each day. Besides your mind, your soul encompasses your will and emotions as well. Jesus people who have emotional issues may need to renew their minds and sometimes get prayer from their Spirit-filled pastors to get deliverance for emotional scars and hurts.
How Your Spirit and Soul Work
It’s very interesting to note, God is the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. He is one, yet He is three. Men and women are also three parts, yet they are one. To get something into your spirit you have to start thinking about it. You are what you think. If you think about junk, you will be filled with junk. If you think about God and invite Him to work in your life, He will.
What Is Bible’s Heart Of Man?
The Bible in both Old and New Testaments tie the Soul and Spirit together talking about the human heart. Our spiritual heart is our soul and our spirit. Your spirit and soul is who you are. That is why we must have our ‘hearts’ right before God.
