S Is for Spirit-Controlled Mind

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. Romans 8:6   Whether you realize it or not, you’re involved in mind-control games. That sounds like something out of a psychological thriller, but the fact is you have a choice about who controls your mind. You can let your sinful nature control your mind. However, you’ll recall that you sinful nature was crucified with Christ (Galatians 2:20). Your old self is dead. But sometimes it can still be a default setting until we master the control issue. Of course, the better choice is to let the Spirit control your mind. When we do, our thoughts and choices become more Christ-like. A spirit-controlled mind leads to life and peace.

“As long as we believe our actions are what creates godliness, then we’ll continue to live life from a position of defeat, trying to find a way to victory.” – Eddie Snipes, The Spirit-Filled Life   The Spirit-Filled Life by Eddie Snipes provides a very clear explanation of what it means to live in dependence on the Holy Spirit. If the title makes you squirm, let me assure you he’s not a tongues-speaking Pentecostal, but neither is he a fundamentalist. His middle road navigated some rugged terrain with ease.

The author begins by explaining our new nature in Christ. Then he talks about the anointing of the Spirit, which is the result of placing ourselves under the authority of Christ. Next, he...
