“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Rom 8:6).
Most believers have no sin problem, but a mindset problem. When your mind is set on the things of the flesh death is certain. You can remember when Eve was tempted to eat the forbidden fruit that she saw that the tree was good for food, and beautiful to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise. Adam and Eve set their mind on the flesh. If you set your mind on the flesh you will die.
We sin when we live after the dictates of the flesh. We must set our mind on things above where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. To be carnally minded means to see, talk and do things from a natural or worldly standpoint. Every area of your life has a spiritual viewpoint and missing that leads to, and is, death. Life is in itself spiritual and is regulated from the realm of the Spirit.
Marriage begins to fail in the spirit before it fails in the flesh. A man becomes sick in the spirit before he becomes sick in the flesh. So if you walk in the spirit, being mindful of the spiritual nature of life, you will keep sin and death at bay.
I choose to be spiritually minded and enjoy life and peace in Jesus.
