Connecting Your Parts
Using 2 charts, let me try to bring this into focus.
You are made up of spirit, soul and body. But God also gave you a heart and free will. When you look at your spirit you, you find that is your prayer life, your praise, worship, faith walk, reverance. So if “things” happen around you causing you to do any of these or learn about these, you are building up your spirit you.
The same goes for your body, your flesh. If you build up your body, abuse your body, or let your body run you, you are spending your life on “dirt” because the body is going to be buried and go back to dirt, (see chart).
What affects your body is your 5 senses: sight, smell, hear, touch, taste. If you have cravings, you are feeding your body what you have taught your body to like and want.
Paul talks about what the body ( the flesh ) wants in Galatians 5:19-21, Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: …”
Paul explains there is a difference to feeding the flesh or feeding your spirit.
Galatians 5:16,17 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
So how do we do that? We will cover that but right now, I need to explain the foundation so when we put it all together, you will understand and it will set you free.
The soul we will cover in our next post. If you printed the Man 3 in 1 chart, list the attributes for each part using this chart. Under your spirit man list the attributes of your spirit, the praise, faith, etc.. and under your body the flesh you, list your 5 senses.
Have a blessed day.
