Flesh vs Spirit . . . A simple math equation.

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spiritthe things of the SpiritFor 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, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.(Roman 8:5-8)
Simple math today . . .Flesh + World = Death . . . Spirit + World =Life

Paul is very clear here. To live in the flesh and to please our carnal lusts and desires will lead to eternal death, or enmity with God. Life in this world and by this world's standards will indeed separate us from God eternally!

However, living by the Spirit of God and His desires will lead to eternal peace and life with Christ! To love free of all the anxieties and tensions this world places upon us we must live by Spiritual Truths of the bible! We need not be afraid (Isaiah 12:2) nor anxious for anything.(Philippians 4:6)

It begins in our thought processes (Romans 12:1-2) and leads to the heart! (Ezekiel 36:26) Believe and live!!!! (John 11:26)
