“May God Himself, the God of peace,
sanctify you through and through.
May your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless
at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23
“The word of God is living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow.“
God’s pattern is: spirit, soul, body – in that order. Yet most of us live our lives in the opposite, leading from our bodily appetites and soul satisfactions. God’s design is that we respond to him and life out of our spirits led by his Spirit. Our spirit should lead our soul and body to glorify Jesus. Every day we have to choose to let Jesus in us respond from our spirits, instead of reacting from our souls and bodies.
Question: In what order is your life running?
