“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.” Romans 8:5
The Amplified Bible says it this way;
“For those who are living according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh [which gratify the body], but those who are living according to the Spirit, [set their minds on] the things of the Spirit [His will and purpose].”
Your body will follow what you set your mind on!
What should I think on to have peace!
“For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].” Philippians 4:8 AMPC
“And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.” Colossians 3:2
So life and peace come when you MIND the right things!
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Romans 8:6
“Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].” Romans 8:6 AMPC
