MY LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL
MONDAY APRIL 11, 2022
DELIVERANCE FROM WORLDLINESS
MAIN TEXT: ROMANS 8:6 – The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Romans 8:13 – For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
Being “carnally minded” brings a gradual and progressive death if it’s not stopped. We must avoid the wrong ways of this world while growing closer to God. When you allow God to lead your mind, over time, you will become more in tune with His will—and in the end will receive eternal life.
Most are oblivious to the eternal peril that awaits them if they don’t repent and surrender completely to Jesus Christ. Those who love God shun worldliness, pursue righteousness, and know the satisfaction that comes from pleasing God. “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all other things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33)
It takes our decision and the power of God to deliver us from the strong yoke of worldliness. Today is the day for you.
A CARNAL MIND IS THE ENEMY OF GOD
PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, deliver me from the yoke of worldliness, transform my reasoning and let the Spirit of God dwell in my heart richly.
