For every day that we are alive, there are many choices to make. One choice that I hope we make every day is to serve and honor God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 8:7 says that the carnal mind is enmity against God and cannot receive the law of God or the Word of God. We cannot be carnally minded and spiritually minded at the same time. We are one or the other, but not both.
To be carnally minded is to be flesh-led, or walking according to our own desires instead of God’s (Galatians 5:19-20). To be spiritually minded is to walk and live according to God’s ways and His standards. Again, every day that we have breath, we get to choose who we will serve: God or our flesh. Carnal mindedness leads to death, while spiritual mindedness leads to peace and life. Which one do you want operating in your life?
I hope and pray that you choose life and begin or continue to choose His ways. Allow God to bless you with all of His promises. May God richly bless you today as you follow Him in all your ways.
