FEASTING ON THE WORD

Old Testament: Isaiah 46-48

New Testament: Revelation 22

Romans 8:6-11 (NIV)

6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. 9 You, however are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

Meditate this week on the above verses. Meditate by reading the verses numerous time; in 2-3 different translations; determining what it meant in the context in which it was originally written and how you can apply it to your life. Additionally, pray the Holy Spirit will give you discernment and revelation of the verses for your life. 

BE BETTER: "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will" Romans 12:2
