“The mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so” (Romans 8:6-7).
Even in the life of faith, to achieve any measure of success requires a certain mindset. What God desires to see accomplished in our lives does not occur naturally. It requires an intentional mindset determined to respond in obedience to the teaching of God’s Word and the bidding of His indwelling Spirit. Living it cannot be accomplished apart from thinking it. It’s all about the mindset.
