The Spirit/Body Connection

“When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow.” (Luke 22:45)

We are souls within bodies, and the spiritual impacts the physical.  The disciples’ souls were consumed with sadness, and their bodies reacted by seeking sleep.  There is a clear interaction among the hearts and souls and bodies that is well-documented throughout Scripture.  Your body is impacted by your spirit, and your spirit is impacted by your flesh.

When your heart is weighed down, don’t be surprised when your body feels the effects.  Also, when your body is suffering, be wary of the danger to your soul.  Jesus was tempted by Satan after forty days without food – the impact of such lengthy fasting upon His body was viewed by Satan as an opportunity.  Jesus prevailed, but the hunger was real.

The spirit/body connection: as long as we dwell here in these earthly tents, you can’t get away from it.
