Cognitive and Corporeal

Jesus is redeeming our comprehensive being, everyday activities and all. Who we are and what we do. This redemption is both cognitive and corporeal. We aren’t welcomed into a bodiless gospel. And we make from how we are being remade.

He Saw That It Was Good p. 35

Cognitive and corporeal. Thinking and doing. Creative and the creation—the idea and the realization of the idea. It all falls under the sphere of what God wants to sanctify. Therefore, 1) changes are not possible apart from God’s work through the gospel in our lives, and 2) changes are not possible without our submission to God’s work in our lives. “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:12–13).
