THE SPIRIT BRINGS LIFE AND PEACE!
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8:6).
The life of the flesh leads to worry, frustration, condemnation and death. When you live to satisfy yourself, you will lose it all. That is why the Bible says in Matthew 16:25, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” This is the irony of life. Whoever wants to save his life in order to satisfy himself, he will lose it. Living to satisfy self is the life of the flesh; such life is carnally minded and it leads to condemnation and eternal death.
As a Christian, God wants you to live the life of the Spirit. The Spirit brings life and peace. The very moment you give your life to Jesus Christ, you become born again. Anyone who is born again does not live the life of the flesh because the Holy Spirit dwells in him. That is the reason why a Christian is not of this world even though he lives in the world. The Bible says in Philippians 3:20, “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Anyone that is born in the Spirit is born into life and peace of God. Jesus Christ said in John 3:6, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” When you are born in the Spirit, you experience the life of God and peace which surpasses all human understanding. This is the reason why as Christians, our lives are unique and a mystery to the world. Enjoy the life and peace of God.
Daily Tip: A Christian is born in the Spirit to live the life of God and enjoy divine peace which surpasses all human understanding. Shalom!
Golden Text: But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14).
