God created each of us with a spirit, a soul, and a body. As believers, we need to understand that the soul contains our mind, will and emotions. Since it is full of “self” and does not want to submit to the Holy Spirit, it must be purified.

Because we have a free will, our own minds tell us what we think, but our thoughts are not necessarily God’s thoughts.

Our wills dictate what we want, even if it conflicts with what He wants for us.

Our emotions determine our feelings, but in Christ, our hearts should only be subject to God and His Word.

God wants us to replace our thoughts, desires, and feelings with His. We cannot live in victory over sin until we do.

Start by telling God you want Him to have His way in your soul. In Romans 6, Paul urges us to “offer” ourselves to Him. Make a choice today not to use your soul for yourself, but to instead offer all of your “self” to God.

As the soul is purified, it is trained to carry God’s thoughts, desires and feelings, and then you will become a powerful outlet for His glory

Welcome, Favour.    We are told to put off the old man and to put on Christ. Eph. 4:17-32

Eph 5:26  that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,

Rom 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 1Co 2:16  For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?”But we have the mind of Christ.
