God Thinking XXIV Prepare To Be Prepared 8

"The scripture says we are to prepare our body to be the temple of the Lord?

The scripture says  we are to prepare our mind to house the truths of God?

And you are to prepare your Spirit.  Prepare your spirit?  How do you do that?

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth.”  John 4:24
  1. How do you nourish the body?  You feed on nutritious foods.
  2. How do you nourish the mind?  You feed on godly things.
  3. How do you nourish the spirit?  You feed on God Himself.
There is a difference in feeding on the Word of God and feeding on God Himself.

I want to take you just a little further than ever before. 

I hope you are settled that you are are Body, mind and spirit and that together complete your soul (you) who you are in completion - your soul. 

Genesis 2:7

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”  literally, a living being with mind and made in the likeness of the Us in Genesis 1:26.  “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness:...”

Body, mind and spirit - made in the image and likeness of God is soul.

God Thinking gets to the bottom of important truths like this.

Truths that help you to become complete - in HIM.
  • What you do in the body affects the mind and the spirit.
  • What you do in the mind affects the body and the spirit.
  • What you do in the spirit affects the body and the mind.
Ultimately what you do in the (body, mind and spirit) affects your soul.

To get your body in line with God’s will and God’s plan for your life - God designed nature and provides all the nutrients, (water, healthy food, air & sunlight) to provide you with excellent health.
To get your mind in line with God’s will and God’s plan for your life, God designed wisdom and knowledge, relationships, discovery, adventure and instruction.  God gave you the Word of God to nourish your mind with pure nutrients for your intellect.

To get your spirit in line with God’s will and God’s plan for your life, God designed a plan where Jesus Christ would propitiate for your sins in order for your spirit to be quickened, made alive in Christ.  When you are made alive in Christ the Holy Spirit comes to indwell you, the believer, and provides spiritual nourishment through preaching, teaching, fellowship and revelation and personal experience."
