So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickeness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls. James 1:21
Our soul is often defined as the mind, the will and the emotions. Each of these areas needs salvation. The Holy Spirit works relentlessly to transform the whole person into God's perfect will, otherwise known as sanctification. When our soul is renewed with His Word, we think His thoughts and not our own.
Please help us to submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to change every thought and motive. We are struggling right now, Lord and we need your help to lift us back up. Please, Lord, save our souls.
