“Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.” Romans 8: 5-8
So, tell us…what’s on your mind? What controls you? Do you think of the God’s Word as something out of the mind of men, or were men used as instruments of God? What did you wake up this morning thinking about? The truth is that we must fix our minds daily on heavenly matters – we have to fix our mind on Jesus (Hebrews 3:1). This, as some of you know, is not always an easy thing because the world offers so much temptation and many distractions. However, if we saturate ourselves with the Word of God and continue to pray at the feet of Christ then we will see significant improvement in our Christian walk. Perhaps there is some sinful habit that you’ve been praying for God to uproot in your life. The Bible says that if we suffer just as Christ suffered, then we too will be free from sin (1Peter 4:1). So, pick up your cross and follow Jesus; set your mind in the heavenly realm. Let it be so. Amen.
