Letting the Spirit control your mind

January 28th, 2015

I was reading Romans 8 just now and verses 6-7 reminded me of something. It says…

“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.” (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭6-7‬ NLT)

The key words that jumped out at me today are letting and mind.

Letting the sinful nature control the mind leads to death. Letting the Spirit control the mind leads to life and peace.

Letting is about allowing something to happen, to give permission, or to allow to take up residence according to the dictionary.

All of these definitions talk about a choice. A choice that is made in the mind.

Romans 8 reminded me just how important it is to have your mind tuned in to the Spirit rather than the flesh.

Let us purpose in our hearts to let our minds be controlled by the Spirit today and be led towards life and peace today.

God Bless,
Dave
