As human beings, we are made of three vital elements. These three elements are known as spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Man has two major aspects that define whom he really is. The first one is the spiritual or immaterial aspect, and the second one is the physical or material aspect. Two out of those three elements are spirit, such as both the soul and the human spirit while the body is physical.
Life and death have been very common all throughout humankind’s history. In fact, life and death are a process of nature that we’re all a product of from the beginning and will eventually have to go through when we cease to exist. Our life starts at one point during conception and will end at some point when we die. But at the same time that issue gets very complicated once we enter the spiritual realm because it’s one thing to be alive physically, whereas it’s something totally different to be alive spiritually. The Word of God has lot to say regarding that matter because God Himself is the author and sustainer of every life.
The hope that we have in God is based completely on the wonderful promises that He has made us through His written Word which is truth (John 17:17). These promises are exactly what encourage us, sustain us, renew our faith, help us, carry us, and motivate us to persevere in every situation irrespective of what the circumstances are. God warns us sternly to persevere up to the end; by the way, only those who persevere to the end will be saved (Matthew 24:13, Revelation 3:21).
