Mind, Body, Spirit
Each person is unique in his/her own way.
However, we all are made up of the three same components: our mind, our body, and our spirit.
Our body is the flesh, bones, organs and blood that make up our physical bodies.
Our mind is the part of us that tells our body what to do and where to go. This can be conscious or unconscious. An example of conscious is me typing this right now. My mind is telling my fingers what buttons to push.
Unconscious would be the beating of my heart or the digestion of my lunch.
Our spirit is the third component of our being and is by far the most important.
Because after our minds and bodies wear out over time, our spirit does not. It lives on.
Where it lives after our life on this earth is a decision we need to make before our minds and bodies give out.
Can an essential oil enhance your Spirit?
Just like our body, mind, and spirit, we have a God who is made up of three in one.
He is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.
All three of these components make up one God. Just like our body, mind and spirit make up one person.
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have been around since the beginning of time. We can learn how God created the earth, made the oceans and dry land, plants and animals and the first humans; and saw that they were good. In fact, we can get all the answers we need about the beginnings of our earth and humankind from Genesis chapters 1-11.
However, we also see in Genesis that the humans God created made a disobedient decision that brought about a lot of pain and suffering to our world.
God's plan was for us to have a perfect world... with no pain, no violence, no suffering.
But God knew humans would make a disobedient decision that would bring a lot of pain and suffering.
Therefore, He created the answers to our suffering in His creation!
That’s where essential oils come in.
We can use essential oils to help with physical and emotional ailments. They work great for that; we have people on a daily basis contact us with testimonies about how wonderfully these oils work. For our bodies and our minds....
But what about our Spirit?
In Genesis 3:15, God gives us our first glimpse of his rescue mission. What was that mission? To send God the Son (Jesus Christ) to pay the sacrifice for the disobedient decision that brought all of this pain and suffering into the world. Because of His sacrifice (that we can read about in the book of Matthew) we have the opportunity to receive healing in our Spirit!
We need to understand that we are not awesome. Really, we’re not. Most all of us have had a bad thought or two towards someone else, we’ve maybe told a little white lie here and there, maybe cut someone off in traffic....
certainly not God material. (1)
Honestly, being human gets us nowhere. Well, I guess it does... death, actually... so I guess that’s somewhere, but not a very nice place. However, God gives us a GREAT place to go when we accept that God the Son (Jesus Christ) came and paid the price for us to go to such a great place. (2)
God shows us how much He loves us every day. One day he showed us just how very much he truly loves us by dying on the cross for all of us not-so-awesome people. (3)
That’s great and all....
but how do I enhance, uplift or heal my spirit?
I’m so glad you asked!
First, admit you’re not perfect. You fall short of what it takes to be with God.
Second, say out loud that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Third, believe in your heart that He was sacrificed and raised from the dead (just for you!).
Fourth, tell people about it!
Now you have been made right and can live at peace with God! (4) (5)
And your spirit is totally and completely healed!
Then God the Holy Spirit comes to you as your helper.... (6)
God the Holy Spirit is how...
your spirit can then be enhanced and uplifted.
No essential oil can do that.
