Be Spiritually Minded by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Be Spiritually Minded by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For to be carnally minded is death; but
to be spiritually minded is life and
peace. Because the carnal mind is
enmity against God: for it is not subject
to the law of God, neither indeed can be
(Romans 8:6-7).

When we talk about being spiritually
minded, the context here is being
spiritually minded towards God; setting
your mind and affection on Him and things pertaining
to His Kingdom.

Some have asked, “How do I set my mind on
the Lord and on spiritual things?” It’s by setting your
attention on the Word! The Word shows you what
spiritual things are and delivers them to you. That’s
because God’s Word is Light (John 1:1-5), and light
defines and reveals (Ephesians 5:13). Your spiritual eyes
need God’s light—His Word—to show you what spiritual
things from Him are, so you can “mind” those things;
set your focus on them.

Romans 8:5 declares, “For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they
that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.” You’re
after the Spirit if your affection, the things that excite
you, and what you focus your attention on, are things
pertaining to Christ, His Gospel, and the eternal life that
He brought to us.

Some Christians don’t show or give sufficient
interest, time, attention, and effort to studying God’s
Word and other spiritually edifying endeavours as praying, attending church services regularly, etc. They’d
rather set their minds and attention on worldly things.
But the Spirit sounds a strong warning to such folks. We
read it as part of our opening scripture; it says, “For to
be carnally minded is death…” (Romans 8:6). But if you
want to live the life of righteousness, with the peace of
prosperity, you have to be spiritually minded.

The fact that you study this devotional to learn
God’s Word, to learn about Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit,
and the Kingdom of God, is being spiritually minded
towards God. Continue in it.

 PRAYER
Dear Father, thank you for awakening in me the
consciousness of my spirituality through the Word.
My attention is set on things above—not on earthly,
carnal, mundane, or transient things. I walk in victory,
power and the dominion of the Spirit, because I’m
spiritually minded, with my unalloyed attention on
the true light of the Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
