Text: Romans 8:5-6; Romans 12:2
1A) You are living with one of two very different mindsets. (v. 5)
2A) Each mindset will lead you to very different results. (v. 6)
3A) Transformation comes as you allow the Spirit to renew your mind. (Romans 12:2)
“Paul has a corresponding saying about those who “are according to the Spirit.” Such people are not intermittently interested in the things of the Spirit; their whole being centers on them. What the Spirit does is their absorbing interest. We should not understand this as a self-centered concentration on the piece of Christian work in which they are engaged. It is rather a delighted contemplation of what the Spirit does wherever the Spirit chooses to move. It is the very opposite of a concentration on oneself, even on the service one renders to God.”
-Leon Morris, The Epistle to the Romans.
