1 Thessalonians 5:23 (ESV) – September 25, 2019

Now may the God of peace sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


The spirit, soul and body refer not so much to the distinct parts of a person as to the entire being of a person.  This expression is Paul’s way of saying that God must be involved in every aspect of life.  We cannot separate the spiritual life from everything else.  Obedience to God is living for Him completely.
