For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
We go through emotions every day, whether that is happy, sad, disappointments or pleasant surprises. And we control our mind by the emotions that we feel. Our mind is a battlefield.
As Christians, we need to let the Holy Spirit control our mind, which leads to life and peace. All the carnal decisions that we make always lead to death.
Most of the time, we are not aware of it. Learn to check your minds every often and steer towards spiritual thinking which will keep us calm and composed because of His presence.
Don’t let emotions dictate your everyday life. Let the Holy Spirit control your mind.
