Spirit, Soul, and Body

Good morning! 3 Jn. 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. You and I are created a three part being. We are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body. The soul of man contains our mind, will, and emotions. When a person is born again by receiving Jesus as his/her Lord and Savior, their spirit is made new. Now they are a child of the Living God. Their body and soul remain the same. It wants to do the same old things, say the same old things, and think the same old things. This is why the Bible tells us that we must renew our minds with the Word of God. It has within it the power to change how we act, what we say, and how we think. This is vital to every child of God, if we want to prosper and be in health. Prosperity is not just limited to financial and material wealth, but includes all the blessings of God. When our soul is transformed by God's Word it will want to do what is pleasing to God. When we are pleasing to God we will reap the blessings He has provided for those who love Him. This causes us to be blessed in every area of our lives, spirit, soul, and in our body.
