Life and Peace

Romans 8:6-8

6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

Reminder to self:

My mind is controlled by the spirit of God. I have life and peace, God’s word clears my mind from thoughts of the flesh, re-news, shapes my thoughts, paves my paths to peace and joyfulness, gives me hope for the future.

My spirit wants to please God – with my thoughts, actions, lifestyle, values, behavior, my attitudes towards others. Sinful thoughts will not control my destiny and hold me back from what God has for my life, for the church, the community, my country, the world I live in and my family.

How much more can God give to you out of the His great and mighty goodness.

Romans 8:9-11

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
