Have you ever thought about how you’re more than just a body? I think we all inherently know this. For instance, when we’re at a funeral and see a body, we somehow know that the person isn’t there any longer. The body is present, but something is missing. I understand that I’m in my body. I can see my body through my eyes, and when I look in a mirror, I can see most of me (except the back… unless I use two mirrors). But here’s what’s interesting: I’ve never found myself in someone else’s body. Nor can I control someone else’s body. I can’t tell the hand of another body to go up in the air, and I have no ability to make another body take off into a sprint. I can do that with my own body, though. However, we’ve already established that you are not your body, and I am not my body. Somehow we’re different. Jesus tells us that we are actually souls that dwell in bodies. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, I recognize that a person is more than just a body. In light of this revelation, Jesus also tells us that we need to be more afraid of he who can cast into hell than in he who can kill the body. The body is temporal, but the soul lives on after the body is destroyed. So the big question you need to ask yourself whether or not you fear the one who has the authority to cast your soul into hell. You body will perish – that’s a given. I’ve yet to see a body survive for more than about 100 years. But what about your soul? What will happen to it when you body perishes? Will it spend eternity in heaven or eternity in hell?
