LET THE SPIRIT CONTROL YOU
Every day we live, we have a choice to make. Are we living in the light of God’s Word and Spirit, or do we allow ourselves to drift into the ways of this world? It is crucial that we be intentional about how we chose to live. It is important to know that our minds are the critical battlefield, in this fight.
Our Scripture lesson reads in this manner:
“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.”
Paul, the humble servant of God, is clear to demonstrate that this is a spiritual battle being waged in our minds. We must allow the Spirit to control our minds, or else the sinful nature will seek to control us. This is no light issue; the sinner nature comes with major consequences that lead to death. What a wonderful reassurance, that if we live in God’s Spirit, we find life and peace. Do you want life and peace, today? I pray you do and that you do everything in your power to yield to the Spirit and not to temptation.
