Romans 7:5 – Mind Set

Today’s Reading: 2 Chronicles 6:12‐8:10, Romans 7:14‐8:8, Psalm 18:1‐15, Proverbs 19:24‐25

Romans 7:5 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 set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

Observations:

  • Context:  Holy Spirit in us has given us the power to live righteously… Following this verse we read: “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.”
  • Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh
  • Those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

What is your mind set on?  Are you focused on your job?  Are you focused on gaining man’s approval?  Are you focused on what will happen next in your favorite TV show?

Apply:  I want to set my mind on the things of the Spirit.  Specifically for me today – taking each step by faith and having a worshipful heart.

What helps you set your mind on the things of the Spirit?
