If you would please turn to - 1 Thess. 5:23

Today I would like to talk about again

The makeup of a man – the three part nature of a man

–the spirit, soul and the body


 As I had discussed at one point in my Christian walk –

 I really only saw myself as a 1 part man.

 I didn’t know that I had a spirit soul and body

But when I became born again

I clearly saw there was something more

than the single dimension that I had lived in

Then I came across this scripture in 1st Thessalonians that says… …

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV)

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The 3 parts of a man’s nature is this:

(1) Spirit - The part of man which deals with the spiritual realm.

The part of man that God has redeemed.

(2) Soul – The part of man which deals with the mental realm.

Man’s intellect.

His sen¬sibilities and will.

The part that reasons and thinks.

(3) Body - The part of man which deals with the physical realm.

The house in which we live.

So as I did last week –

(1) I want you to begin thinking of yourself in a new light.

(2) Don’t think of yourself as just a physical being.

(3) Think of yourself as a spirit being who possesses a soul and lives in a body.



 Man is a spirit who possesses a soul and lives in a body.

 Man’s spirit is that part of him that knows God.

Jesus told the woman at the well in Samaria,

(John 4 :24)

"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth".

 It is through our spirit that we come to know God.

 So we know that God is a Spirit.

Last week we looked at a scripture in Ezekiel chapter 36

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Ezekiel was prophesying ---- concerning the new birth.

 When a man is born again,

 the spirit (which is the real man)

 He is born again and the old man is gone.

T.T. 2 Corinthians 5:17

The old hard, stony heart is gone.

He is a new creature ---- You are borne again!!

Paul said in II Corinthians 5

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.


If you would please turn to Romans 12:1

Next I would like to look at..


We will now look more closely

into the second part of --- man’s three-fold nature -- - the soul.
