1 Thessalonians 5:23

Cure of the Soul

1 Thessalonians 5:23 "May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Body and soul are inseparable in God's eyes. The soul receives spiritual power to live out in the body what it means to be sanctified "through and through." Yet when bodily illness strikes, we tend to pray more for healing of the body than of the soul. It is healing of the soul that enables us to bear illness.
