In Romans 8:5-6, we read, ““Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.”
When you have your mind set on what the Spirit desires, you will experience power over sin. Think about it:
* If you set your mind on chastity, what place will lust have?
* If you set your mind on humility, what place will pride have?
* If you set your mind on generosity, what place will greed have?
* If you set your mind on love, what place will selfishness have?
This is a choice. We can choose what we put into our minds. We can choose what to think about. We can choose what to dwell on.
