Sort of like God is a trinity, Father, son, and Holy Ghost; so we too are made of spirit, soul, and body. Now, of course the trinity is different in that there are three different persons with one nature, but we are sort of similar. The bible says in 1Thessalonians 5: 23 "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." So, how do these three parts of a human work? Well, the body is the one we are the most familiar with and it is what allows us to relate with the tangible world; for instances its what allowed us to pick up the paper to read it. The soul is who you are. For instance when you refer to yourself you are not talking about the 3 pound mass in your skull called a brain. No, you realize that there is that immaterial part of you that is conscience and that is truly you. C.S. Lewis put it this way... "you are not a body with a soul, you are a soul with a body." Your soul is the part of you that has an opinion about this article, its what makes you self conscience. Our Spirit is how we relate with God. The Spirit is what separates us from the animals. Everyone has a spirit and that is what allows us to have a relationship with God. The bible says in John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Unfortunately, the bible teaches that our spirit is dead and that we are separated from God. If we die in this state we will spend eternity in hell, but it doesn't have to be that way your spirit can be brought alive. That's why the bible says in John 3:7 "Marvel not, that I said unto thee, ye must be born again." If you want to be born again you must repent and trust Jesus Christ as your sin bearer; your savior.
