Living three dimensional life
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. -1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NKJV)
Man is tripartite being, that is man is made up three components namely spirit, soul and body. Spirit is the most important part of human being. It gives life to man and access to the spiritual realm. Spirit is came from God and it is eternally exist. Soul is the another component of human being, which consist three components namely Mind, Will and Emotion. And soul is also eternally existed. Mind has memory of all experience of life and all knowledge one has gained. Mind also help to interpret and understand the things that happen around us. And Will is responsible for making right or wrong, moral and immoral, good or bad decision. Emotion which is feeling or mood of person i.e happy, sad, calm, excited, worried, peaceful, tensed or relaxed etc. Body is physical housing for both soul and spirit. It has five sense that is touch, taste, hearing, sight and smell. Human body is mortal and it has life span. After soul and spirit leaves from body, the body is dead or inactive. And it will be mitigating in dust.
As mention above, man has three parts i.e spirit, soul and body. To be healthy and whole in life, man must be grow in all three dimension i.e spiritual dimension (spirit), intellectual dimension (soul) and physical dimension (body). And all three component has ability to grow on certain limit or status, if he was feed healthy food and do healthy exercise.
Most of the man are familiar to the two dimension that is physical dimension and intellectual dimension because it is directly and visibly to this world. But often we neglect the third and most important dimension that is spirit and spiritual dimension. Because of the lack of knowledge of spiritual dimension, must of the people died in spirit and live a two-dimensional life only.
The bible tell that real man is spirit, that has soul and housed in physical body. That’s why we called man is spiritual being. To grow spiritual dimension, man must be eat and drink spiritual food and must do spiritual exercise. The spiritual food is Word of God and spiritual exercise means prayer, fellowship with God, fellowship with believers, exercising the gift of Holy spirit. Because for physical growth man eat and drink three times a day and do physical exercise. And to grow in intellectual dimension, we must feed our mind by reading books, material, studying in college and university.
To grow in spiritual dimension, like both physical and intellectual dimension; It is very important that the man who want to grow spiritually have good knowledge about possibility of spiritual growth; have a desire for spiritual growth; have made a decision to grow spiritually; believe in possibility and importance of spiritual growth.; have a good plan to grow spiritually, follow plan exactly, evaluate process they make and identify the area where growth has to be take place.
So my friends, let us make plan to grow all three dimension of life and fulfill our God given dream and destiny.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.- 3 John 2 (NKJV)
