We are human beings. Weather we want or not somehow we are attracted to the seen things. This physical world are fancy and lovely somehow. They make us happy in a short period of time. It seems most family broken is the reason of materialism. Apostle Paul said the why of this? According to His word in Romans 8 : 6 (The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.) Christianity is death if the mind governed by the flesh , Christianity is alive if the mind governed by the spirit which is life and peace. We celebrate these days ( Christmas ) because of Christ not by Christian traditions or a group of people did a song of Joy or may it would be a pagan roots . We do this because we have the spirit of God . We do this because Immanuel came on the earth. Because the spirit of God is with us.
The Spirit of God has worked through the history of humanity and we see the fingerprint of it easily. We can not deny it. If this generation have low or high faith it is not going to impact what God has plan for us. We read it and we saw it . It is depends and up to us. If I do not have faith enough , I am ruining myself and my life . If I want to think like I am living in a new generation or everything is technology and Now human can cure everything I am making big mistake. The human being can not heal the spirit. Only Him who owns the spirit can bring it to whole.
I am taking you to one step up, You need naked yourself of the things of this world. And need to wear a new mind. To be honest there is no other choice around. Are you belonged to the earthly things ? No , you are not. You are not belong here . You are a guest here. Than how would you be ? Some thinking this is a last station . No! Do not be fool . This is not your end . This is a beginning of a new life for you. A life in Spirit. Let your mind know that. Everything is a temporary here but you have eternity in Him. This would not be hidden from you , the mind of flesh is against God. If others wanted to cover this truth; they are not honest to you. Because the mind of flesh can not please God. If you are living on your own and you are not thinking and living according the plan of God, You are not belong to Him. Because you have not the mind of Christ.
“And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. ” ( Romans 8 : 9 ).
Who can have the mind of Christ? Whom accepted Him as Saviour and the King and live according to His will. Salvation is not one thing and finished . You need to work on and grow it. You have not finished yet till your hands on his hand. This is the same Spirit raised Jesus from the dead is living in YOU.
“man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7).”
Discipline your spirit to be guided by God. May I haven’t had before , but I want to be in Spirit in my speech and act . And I know it would be hard to have this which all the world going to opposite me. But I know the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses.
Man, our generation is going all the way around for nothing. They do not have a true and meaning purpose of life. Because they forgot to put HIM first. The smartest person , The strongest person , the weakest and the poorest and richest, ALL ; we need to be guided by His spirit.
To this now , when you do understand doing life with spirit how vital is than you abousltly know that :
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” ( Romans 8 : 28 )
Definitely you have been his chosen one. And I believe you are carrying His goodness and greatness to everywhere you go when you are lead by His Spirit.
