Life in accordance with the Spirit!
Who do you think will enter the kingdom of God? What kind of people should we become?
Concerning this matter, the Bible warns as follows:
Rome 8:7~8 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
When we are controlled by the sinful nature, we cannot please God, who will lead us to His kingdom.
Here, what happens spiritually when we are controlled by sinful nature?
When our hearts are filled with the sinful mind, we come to refuse to keep God's commands, standing against God the Savior!
While doing so we'll end up with death in the lake of fire, not with eternal life in a new heaven and a new earth.
Do you truly want to be saved from this sinful world? God allowed us the wisdom.
Rome 8:5~6 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in
accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;
Whoever wants to be saved by God must have his mind set on what the Spirit desires!
The sinful mind results in death, but when we are controlled by the Spirit we'll receive the goal of our faith, the eternal life in the heavenly kingdom.
How about listening to the Bible written by men who were carried along by the Holy Spirit? (2 Peter 1:21)
While doing so, God will fill our hearts with the heavenly hope. Apart from God, it seems to be free and happy, outwardly.
We should not be controlled by the worldly sorrows.
When we keep in step with God;s teachings from the Bible, we'll be clothed with the imperishable!
