How is a human being a unique creation of God? We are chosen by God to receive God’s love and to love Him in return. Incredibly, He offers us life and love on this earth; however, more incredibly, He offers us Eternal Life when we accept His offer of forgiveness by faith through the grace that He provides. This is an awesome truth and impossible for my human mind and heart to understand other than by faith, and that too is a gift of God. My being cries out in thankfulness for this immeasurable gift!

Just as God is three in one – Creator, Christ, Holy Spirit – humanity can be understood in three parts: body, mind, and spirit.

 “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 NRSV

How Can We Show Gratitude to Our Creator?

How then can we acknowledge, express gratitude for, and appropriate these gifts of body, soul, and spirit in order to honor our Lord, to help others, and to grow in grace and truth? 

II Peter 3:18 says: “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”  To grow in grace is to mature as a Christian.

How then are we to best function so that we can enjoy this life on earth to the fullest?  This can only be accomplished by finding our purpose through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who with the Father and Holy Spirit, complete the Godhead.  How is a human being a unique creation of God?

Don’t miss out here on earth to be all that you have the capacity to be.

How Can We Respond to God’s Great Gifts?

 Let’s look at some of the ways to become who we are meant to be by committing to His plan and responding to His undeserved love. 

Care for the Mind

Modern technology floods the airwaves with information. Immediately, news stories reach around the world before they can be verified. AI trumps it all with its scary abilities as we ponder how far it will go? 

There are pictures, real and imagined, placed into our minds that are difficult to delete.  It is imperative that we become involved in clearing the information with which our children are being inundated. But we also need to guard our own minds and hearts. 

Our mind is our ability to think and reason. Thank God for a clear mind. A high IQ is not afforded all; however, the gift of wisdom is not only a gift to be desired, but God tells us to ask for wisdom. 

Wisdom is a complex word that involves having good sense, clear judgment, and the ability to think critically. It also means having compassionate wisdom that involves empathy and concern for others.  

Wisdom is to be desired, whatever level of intellectual achievement.  All wisdom comes from God, as do common sense and understanding. Only God can fill our minds and hearts with love and purity. 

King Solomon is quoted, “Guard your mind and your thoughts, because they will determine how you live your life.” 

Take care what you put into your mind, what movies you see, what books you devour.  Rid your thoughts of all false ideologies and ungodly speculations that you may be entertaining.

Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”  Philippians 4:8

Are these the things we rush to tell our friends?  Or do we spread the bad news, the latest gossip, the darkness of this world?  Be an Encourager. Be the Light.  Be the Wise friend.  Lift others up, help carry their burden, rejoice over their blessings, and share God’s word in your daily living.  

Care for the Body

  How is a human being a unique creation of God? As good stewards of our bodies, which are the most intricate and complex marvels of creation, we need to practice good health habits. We are not all equally physically blessed; but we are all equally challenged to develop and maintain this amazing body – this body that we’ve been given and wherein we dwell.

Adequate nutrition may be our first thought. Other than in some very underdeveloped nations, it is possible for the majority of people to choose a diet filled with adequate vitamins and minerals to sustain healthy bodies.  

Maintaining healthy bones as we age is one of our biggest challenges. Bone tissue is living tissue and its structure changes as a part of normal aging. 

Bone health requires adequate Vitamin D and calcium levels, weightbearing exercises like walking and hiking, weight maintenance and other healthy habits such as non-smoking and a balanced diet. It is important to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D and calcium through diet to optimize the mineralization of the bony matrix to prevent altering bone density. Supplements may be needed. 

A diet that is conducive to bone health is also a diet that promotes general health. Make healthy eating and exercise a part of your daily routine – a normality rather than a rarity. 

Full activity and taking care to walk daily – preferably outdoors – can keep us mobile in our bodies and more positive in our thinking.

Care for the Soul

With all the attention on physically related resolutions in our world today, it’s easy to forget about our soul. But your soul is the core of who you are.  It is not only who you are but whose you are.  It is the seat of the relationship with God and with others. 

Our soul lives on after our body dies. The soul and its care then surely deserve our foremost attention. By challenging yourself to grow and deepen your relationships, you can push yourself to a whole new level of happiness and health.  

Believing God’s offer of eternal salvation, and believing and receiving the gift of forgiveness that He offers when we receive and accept this gift, is the beginning of a relationship with God as a forgiven child. His Spirit comes to live with us, to guide and assure us, to continually point us to Jesus, the Christ. 

A strong spiritual relationship with God, a daily walk with him, and an intended dependence upon him, gives us wisdom and strength, and fills us with love – a truly healthy union with God – a truly undeserved gift.  Isn’t that amazing?  God’s Spirit lives within the believer.

By challenging ourselves to grow and deepen all of our earthly relationships, we have the ability to rise to a whole new level of happiness and health. Caring for others, sharing their burdens, leaving our world a little better than it was, and allowing the Fruits of the Spirit, which are “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control,” (Galatians 5:22-23) to shape us into persons of strength and love and humility is a life worth living.  

Purposeful Living

Mind, body, and soul – the whole person – in a spiritual union with the Spirit of God living within us is the basis for purposeful living. Knowing that we are not alone, knowing that we are forgiven, knowing that we are loved by God and that He is ever near for us to reach out to, to call upon Him, gives us peace.  These are also the things that give us strength for every trial, every terror, every opportunity. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”  Philippians 4:13. 

How is a human being a unique creation of God? In the light of God’s Word, we then conclude that we are uniquely made by the Eternal God, who loves us and died to pay for our sins so that we may live forever with this Holy God. He cares for us as human bodies, encourages us to fill our minds with pure thoughts, and cleanses us so that we may live eternally in His Kingdom on the New Earth.  Yes, you are priceless.  God loves you.  Trust Him today.

The Prayer of Salvation

Jesus, I don't know You, and I don't know what Your plan is for me. But thank you for coming to die in my place. I'm sorry for anything I've ever done wrong in my life. I don't understand how You could ever forgive me, but if You really would, I would like to accept your free gift of grace and complete forgiveness. Please come into my life and take control, and help me trust You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
