Mind Control

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6

What’s on your mind today? How often do you think about your own death or how often do you avoid thinking of it?

My dear friend, if the thought of death frightens you, let me invite you to set your mind on the Spirit. You see, all the things of the flesh will one day come to an end. So if your mind is set on the things of this physical world and its current pleasures, you cannot enjoy true life and peace which comes only from being united with Christ.

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. Romans 8:5
