Romans 8:6 – How do I find inner peace?

S – Romans 8:6 “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.”

O – Paul said in the previous verse: “…those who live according to the flesh set their minds on things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.”  If we set our minds on the thing of the Spirit, live according to the Spirit, and find life and peace.”

A – I want to make a point not to think continually about or let myself focus on the stuff in this fallen world.  Instead, I want to focus my mind on the things of God.  I want to think about the gospel of Jesus Christ and what the Holy Spirit has enabled me to do.

P – Lord, transform me by the renewing of my mind.  Help me to set my mind on the Spirit.

Have you found life and peace?  Where is your mind?
