The Soul



Mind, Body and Soul. The Mind contains your Thinking and Thoughts. The Body contains your Physical Anatomy.

But the Soul is the Inner Life of a Person and the Seat of your Emotions.

Many Young & Middle Adult Christians are very knowledgeable of the Mind and the Body, but many Young Adult Christians have very little Understanding about the Soul.

The Soul: That which makes you who you are, and makes you do what you do. Only that which you Understand, can give you the Power to Be and to Do.

Some Young & Middle Adults think that when you accept Jesus Christ and Confess Him as Lord and Saviour their lives has been saved. This is where the term: Living a Saved Life comes from. But it is not your life that gets saved, it’s your Soul that gets saved, and your Life surrendered to Christ for changing to Live for Him (Christian Living).

James 1:21 -Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word,  which is able to save your souls.

At receiving Salvation your Soul is saved, BUT then your Soul must go through a continual process of conversion. Psalm 19:7 -The law of the Lord is perfect, Converting the soul.

Why do I say understanding the Soul can Change your Life? Because Knowledge is Power. And when you have the Knowledge with Understanding of the importance of the Soul, then Christian Living becomes a Lifestyle and not an off and on task with weakness and excuses. And the battle between good and evil to be and to do in your Life becomes Victorious Living for Christ.


Let’s talk about the Soul: KJV

It all started in 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.


Ezekiel 18:4 -Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Your Soul does not belong to you, all Souls belong to God. He has placed one of His Souls in your body for a reason and a purpose. And when you fulfill that purpose, God is pleased with your life.


Matthew 10:28 -And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

No matter what happens to you physically, God is still in control of the Soul that He has placed in your body. Reverence, Respect and Obey God, for He is the only one who can determine the outcome of the Soul He has placed in your body.


Luke 12:19/20 -And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

This man decided to speak to his Soul, when his Soul did not belong to him. So God called this man a fool and then took back the Soul He had placed in this man's body and the man died. And everything this man worked to get went to someone else.


Hebrews 13:17 -Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

This is sooo important. Your Pastor (if you have one), watches over the Soul that God has placed in your body. And they (your Pastor) must give an account to God for His watch (caring, nurture, growth, protection) over the Soul that God has placed in your body.

* Make sure you have the right Pastor, your Soul is at Risk!
