Life in the Spirit 7

Download Today’s Audio☞

Romans 8:6-7 (NET)  For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace, because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so.

Before Tochukwu realized how much his outlook was still shaped by the flesh,  he assumed he was serving God,  but he did not realize that he was ruled by self-centeredness and the love of money. 
Because of this,  his spiritual life did not grow,  even though he was very active in church activities. He saw that he had no authority over demons,  and was unable to resist the devil.
But after he realized that his outlook to life was the fundamental problem,  he was delivered from the dominion of spiritual death. 

The outlook of the flesh is a self-centered worldly mindset that always gravitates towards the love of money and is prey to the deceitfulness of riches. The deceitfulness of riches is that lie that says all you need to be happy and fulfilled in life is more money. It says a man's life consists of the abundance of the things he owns. So even though the expected fulfillment is not achieved when a person gets all the money he thought would bring fulfillment,  he assumes that the answer is in getting more money still. The deceitfulness of riches keeps people under slavery to Mamon, and slavery to mammon ensures that people are under the dominion of satan.

Today's Bible verses reveal that a believer who still has a fleshly worldly outlook to life would struggle with his spiritual life. By Faith in Christ Jesus, we have received spiritual life. But a fleshly outlook seeks to hinder this life from finding expression in our daily lives.

Go into today resting and finding security in the Lord,  understanding that He cares for you and will take care of you.
Determine to allow the Holy Spirit, through God's word,  shape your outlook to life and cause you to walk in the life of God. 

Prayer: Dear Father,  please deliver me from every worldly and fleshly outlook to like. Help me to excel in spiritual life and please you in all regards. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
-Abraham Damilola Arigi
