Getting to The Root of Our Problem: Sickness - Session 2 - Part B

I. What Word Says About Sickness: Session 2 - Part B

* Man’s Background – Session 2 – Part B

1 Thessalonians 5:23 shows the makeup of man; we are a three-part whole being – spirit, soul, and body (see image below)The 1599 Geneva Bible version of 1 Thessalonians 5:23 says it like this: “Now the very God of peace [a]sanctify you throughout: and I pray God that your whole spirit and soul and body, may be kept blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We are a spirit (we are made in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit’s image and likeness – God is our Creator – Genesis 1:26-27). Our spirit determines our identity; who we are in God. Next, we have a soul, which has to do with our personality – our soul house our mind [thinker], our emotions [feeler if you have emotional problems, the issue is in your soul]; and will [chooser]. The third part of man is the body, which is the dwelling place for the spirit and soul (see image below).

In our body, we also have our 5 senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch – see image below)a speak center, and an action center (act out what is happening in our soul or spirit). The body enables us to either praise God when all is well with our soul or enables us to act in an ungodly way, when it isn’t.
