“For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace” (Romans 8:6).
Someone has said that thinking is the hardest work there is, which is why so few are willing to do it. The mind set on the flesh is easy, intuitive; it comes natural. The mind set on the Spirit, however, requires deliberateness and intentionality; it is a disciplined exercise of the will and becomes the foundation to all decision-making: Does this enhance or detract from my commitment to the Lord? Will this move me forward in the faith journey, or hold me back and keep me hostage? It is the perspective of a life rooted in the cross and empowered by the Spirit.
