Man is a tripartite being. We are spirits, we live in a body and we have a soul.

The spirit communicates with God. The body communicates with the realm of the physical. The soul houses the will, the emotions and the intellect.

When we give our life to Jesus and we come to know Him, the spirit is regenerated, the soul is in the process of being renewed, but the body will be saved when Jesus comes back.

However, the voice of the body or flesh is loud. So loud that if left to operate, it will superimpose its lusts and cravings over the spirit, thereby leading into a cycle of failure and divers problems. The flesh has no gain or profit therein. None!

You will find that here in the scriptures.

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Joh 6:63 (KJV)

Amplified Bible says the flesh has no benefit. Take a look:

It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.

Joh 6:63 (AMPC)

Living in the flesh and taking instructions from the body conveys no benefit. That is quite instructive.

The next probable question is what then do we do to the body?

We are to discipline the body. And we do that by putting the body under!

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

1Co 9:27 (KJV)

You put the body under by not listening to its cravings and instructions. If you keep listening to the voice of the body, you can point others to God while not making it! That will not be our portion in Jesus name.

Decide to stop all habitual sins. Listen to your spirit rather than take instructions from the body.

May God grant you more understanding in Jesus name, Amen.

I put my body under.

Help me to put my body under oh Lord.

1 Corinthians 9:27 (TPT) but I train like a champion athlete. I subdue my body and get it under my control, so that after preaching the good news to others I myself won’t be disqualified.

Walk in the spirit.

1 cor 9
