The Threefold Nature of Man Chapters 1-2

May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!
— 1 Thessalonians 5:23 MSG

We must understand that we are a spirit being who possesses a soul and lives in a body.  Our spirit connects with God and our soul is our thoughts, emotions, and our body which allows us to live in this physical realm. The confusion comes because the church has portrayed spirit and soul as the same thing. 

The church talks about winning souls yet in reality we are after spirits. Our spirit man is reborn and is going to live forever. It is our spirit that connects with God. 

  • Body - physical realm
  • Spirit - spiritual realm
  • Soul - feeling, thinking, doing

- Pastor Lisa Womble
