“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”Romans 8:5-6……
So what’s your mind set on during your day? Is it set on the things of the flesh or the things of the Spirit? Your mind doesn’t have to be on sinful things for it to be on the flesh. You could just spend your day thinking only about natural things and your mind would be on the things of the flesh.
Not all natural things are sinful, but natural things have no power to produce life and peace. Actually, they may produce just the opposite, they may produce death. I’m not talking about physical death, but spiritual death. Spiritual death is defined as separation from God. Your thought life can separate you from the life of God. Thinking about natural things all the time cuts you off from the life of God. It can separate you from His power.
Years ago I learned that I needed to think about what I’m thinking about. I want to challenge you to see if you are being spiritually minded or carnally minded throughout your day. Start thinking about what you are thinking about. It’ll determine if you are going to have life and peace in your life!
