Be Renewed In The Spirit Of Your Mind
We are by nature sinful and go astray in our hearts, even though we desire to walk every day after the things of The Spirit there are some days we desire to walk after the flesh, this is a natural and normal experience. But this does not mean we should cease to aspire to walk a walk cultivatiing a day by day transition of walking out from under the "me" "myself" and "I" of the carnal person the old person.
"That, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lust of deceit, and that you be reneweed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth." Ephesians 4:22-24
Being transformed by the renewing of our minds (Rom 12:2) and renewed in the spirit of our mind (Eph 4:23) enables The Spirit of Christ Jesus to take us from glory to glory. This way we grow up, we come further into maturity, and we become more Christ centered, His will His way centered.
Consider how will someone hear the Gospel if Abba does not send someone?
This is the same, unless we are renewed by what are His righteous requirements on how to live as one set apart we will stay ignorant in those areas. We will continue to mind the things of the flesh and bear little fruit and do little works of righteousness for His Kingdoms redemptive plans and purposes for each other.
"So that the righteous demand of the law might be fulfilled in us, those not walking according to flesh, but according to Spirit. 5. For the ones that are according to flesh mind the things of the flesh. and the ones according to spirit mind the things of the Spirit. 6. For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace." Romans 8:4-6
