Accepted or Commissioned?

The moment we repent, and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, our spirits become justified. They are fully redeemed in the eyes of God.  There is no further judgement of the spirit due to Christ’s atonement on the cross. In fact, we are told in Ephesians 2 that Christians are seated with Christ in heavenly places!  That means right now.  This is an awesome thing for which we should be eternally grateful. However, far too many Christians think that the justification of their spirit is enough…singing about being redeemed and dreaming about heaven and the rooms prepared for them in the mansions of heaven.  But we need to remember that just as God is a 3 part being, so are we who are created in His image.  Our spirit is justified and redeemed, but we still have 2 other parts of our being…body and soul.   Our bodies are the decaying shell
