Set Your Mind On God

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. ~ Galatians 5:22–24

The Spirit does not bear all these fruits unless the flesh has been crucified. Which means it is no longer in charge. It does not dictate anymore. We are no longer feeding our own egos, but we are seeking to please God.

The spiritual Spirit is not concerned with the things of this world. It is the spirit of the world that is concerned with such things. Therefore, we have to set our minds on the things of God so that our spirit may be after the Spirit of God. Why?

Because the mind nurtures the heart, the heart nurtures the soul, and the soul nurtures the spirit. So, in order to overcome, we have to renew our minds because the heart is deceitful above all things. Therefore, we cry out, as David did, to create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Set Your Mind On God.
