May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NIV)
This verse clearly states that you are made up of 3 parts. The spirit, soul and a body. The spirit is the real us. It’s the only part of us that gets born again. This brings a bunch more clarity when you read things like, you’re a new creature in Christ, old things are passed away and behold are things are made new. This is obviously not talking about our body. That doesn’t change when we are born again. It’s also not talking about our soul. We often still think the same and feel the same until we renew our minds with the Word of God. But, our spirit does become completely new when we receive Jesus and confess Him as Lord.
Be encouraged today that if you did receive Jesus you are made completely new. In your spirit, God has made something brand new that never existed before.
