SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In my family growing up, we all shared the same attitude: to love and respect God by living ethically & morally as identified in this next scripture. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8: 5-8 NKJV
NATURE – Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life – in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. Philippians 2: 14-16 NIV
Romans 12:2 – Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to h and is perfect. GNT
Mind Set – As mentioned in an early blog, I truly believe that there are only two types of people in this world, the negative (carnally minded) and the positive (spiritually minded). It is my opinion, that our attitude towards God can be seen through these two separate mindsets, and whether you live as God wants and always try to do what is right.
