A WORD FOR YOU - BEING SPIRITUALLY MINDED
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6)
The realm of the spirit is much like the natural world; there is the babyhood stage, the childhood stage and, the manhood stage and all the stages in between them. As a baby, everything is done for you, whatever you find; you think it is to be eaten. That’s the way spiritual babes are, they eat every doctrine and the Bible describes them as carnal.
Now, Romans 8:7 tells us “…the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” In other words, the carnal or fleshly minded person cannot please God.
Jesus had a spirituality that was unmistakable. As a child of God, your consciousness should always be spiritual. Practice the Lord’s ways of doing things. Think, see and live by the Word. This is very important because life is spiritual, and understanding the spirituality of life is where success is.
In Deuteronomy 32:46-47, the Bible says: “Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land…”
Live in the Word, and let it control your way of thinking; irrespective of contrary circumstances; that’s the way of success and victory always.
