FAITH FILLED AND AT REST
By Pastor Michael Heil
FAITH WORKS THE SALVATION OF MY SOUL: The soul of man-including my soul-is made up of the elements of personality. A person’s persona or personality, or the way they are viewed by others is the manifestation of their mind, their emotions, and the decisions they make in life. These are the three parts of our soul: mind-emotions-will.
The problem with most people recognizing this is most people have no idea how God created us! So, if we don’t know who we are, it is hard to recognize the changes that happen spiritually in our life. Genesis 2:7 says, “and God created man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.” Dust of the ground = our physical body; breathed into his nostrils the breath of life = our spirit; and man became a living soul = our soul. So, God reveals in Scripture there is a difference between our spirit and our soul. This is further confirmed by God in I Thessalonians 5:23 and Hebrews 4:12.
"now that you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls."
1 Peter 1:9 (Berean Study Bible)
