Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. - 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
The human spirit enables God-consciousness, the soul self-consciousness, and the body world-consciousness. However, God’s design is for us to function as whole beings, not fragmented. Sin shatters the wholeness. Paul’s lament in Romans 7 and Galatians 4 is the warfare this fragmentation produces between the “flesh” and the “spirit.” Christ’s salvation restores wholeness to the human being. He does the work, and brings it to fruition. Through Christ, we are brought back to God’s perfect design.
