Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.~Romans 8:5-8
There is an old saying “you are what you think about” and man that is the truth. As we strive to lead our wife, children and grandchildren in this life, this verse is an important verse for us to know, understand, eat and LIVE BY.
The end of this section says “That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God” verse 8~
Gentlemen, you are a BRAND NEW CREATION in this life, this took place when you gave your heart to God. See 2Cor. 5:17 — if the sinful nature still controls you, you have a slight problem…you have either resurrected the old man or you never really died and was raised up with Jesus. Check yourself.
Our job as men is to protect, wash our wife with the Word of God, pray over them, direct them and lead them into a HOLY LIFE. This can only take place as we are controlled by the Holy Spirit.
Verse 9 of this chapter says… “…..and remember those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all”
Don’t be upset with me on this Scripture — the Holy Spirit wrote this!! We need to press in, know Him, know His word, be a Warrior in prayer. It is then you will find yourself loving your wife as Jesus loved the church and not only that SHE WILL FIND you loving her as she was meant to be loved!!!
Now go out and have an EPIC day today
