Man, or woman, is made up of three parts: Spirit, Soul, and Body.
That last great day of the Feast of Tabernacles (or Hoshanah Rabbah) tells us much about the prophecies of the coming Messiah.
We should put our hope in God. When we are discouraged, we should read our Bibles, worship God with others, fellowship with a life group and pray, which is both talking AND listening.
Our spirit reaches out to God and our ‘spiritual side’. It can lead us to light or lead us to darkness. Our soul, or psyche, is the seat of our will and emotions. Our body is our physical being, and all things physical.
Do not try to quench your spiritual thirst with physical things. We each were born with a spiritual thirst that can only be quenched by a relationship with God.
When we are ‘Born Again’, we are forgiven, and our spirit comes alive.
Sometimes when we are anxious or depressed, it is because we have drifted from God or lost sight of God. Man tries desperately to solve this problem without God, but we can’t. We need God to be spiritually complete.
Being sanctified is our soul reaching out to God, connecting with God, and in the process blessing us and the Lord.
