The Mind Set On Flesh and The World

Recently, I listened to my pastor preach a great sermon on Romans 8:5-13. The mind-set on flesh or the World does not have the spirit, and the one set on God does.

Let’s take a look at the contrasts between the two.

On the flesh:         On God:

Death                           Life

War                              Peace

Pleasing self             Pleasing God

 

When you have the spirit, Christs dwells within you, you belong to him, and you spirit is alive with righteousness. When the spirit has you, you put to death the deeds of the flesh which is mortification.

When you are led by the spirit of God, you have Aspiration.

It is tough in our modern world to always be in the spirit. We struggle everyday, but with God, we know that he is with us in our fight.

With God, we do not fear. That is the result of walking in the spirit. As my preacher stated, if you have fear, you are not a Christian. Romans 8:15.
