Death or Life?

For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. — Romans 8:5-8

Where is your mind focused? Death or life and peace? Flesh or Jesus Christ?

Mind Set

 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:5

What is your mind set on? Is it set on the things of or on the earth (Philippians 3:19; Colossians 3:2)? The things that satisfy the lust of the flesh? The things that occupy our lives but are worthless, and don’t enhance our lives? We need to set our minds on the things of the Spirit. 1 Chronicles 22:19a says, “Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God”; 2 Corinthians 1:10, set our hope on Jesus. The mind set on the Spirit is life and peace (Romans 8:6). Are you lacking life and peace? Maybe it’s time to evaluate what your mind is set upon.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Philippians 4:8

Continually seeking Him,
