So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God's laws and it never will. That's why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.-----Romans 8:6-8
I believe this is why the world is in the shape that it is in today. Because MANY are being CONTROLLED by their SINFUL nature, through their mind-set and the desires of their desperately, wicked hearts.
From the fall of mankind till today, the sinful nature has ALWAYS been HOSTILE to God and has NEVER obeyed His laws and NEVER will. And that being the case, those CONTROLLED by their sinful nature can NEVER please God.
Those that are CONTROLLED by the HOLY SPIRIT of the Living God, through their mind-set and their contrite HEART will be led to LIFE and PEACE (the ABUNDANT life and PEACE that passes ALL understanding.)
So my question to you is, what or who is CONTROLLING your mind and heart? Are you being led by your sinful nature to a spiritual death filled with heartache, suffering, despair and NO HOPE? Or are you a Child of the Living God, being CONTROLLED by His Spirit and led to that ABUNDANT life and peace that passes ALL understanding?
You can ONLY be CONTROLLED by His Spirit by doing the following things: CONFESS your sins to God and ask for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVE in your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, and then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
