Controlled by the Spirit
So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. Romans 8:6
When our mind is set on the flesh - the worldly desires - this leads to sin which leads to death.
When we set our mind on the Spirit of God - that leads us to a spirit of life and peace.
When we set our minds on things above (Colossians 3:2), we stay focused on what is happening in Christ. We are able to see things from Christ's perspective - not the world's.
Father God, keep my mind set on the Holy Spirit that brings me life and peace. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Cross-Reference Scripture: Galatians 6:8
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
