Two options

Rising Joy by Vicki Matheny

Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8.11

There are two options to live by: the flesh or the Spirit. There is no sitting on the fence. Your outlook on life is shaped by the option that you choose. Not only your outlook on life, but where you spend eternity is determined by it.

If you choose to live by the flesh, your outlook will be shaped by the flesh. The end result is death because it is hostile toward God. It does not submit to God’s law and cannot please Him. The person with this spirit does not belong to Christ.

However, if you choose to live by the Spirit, your outlook is shaped by the Spirit bringing life and peace. Those who have obeyed Christ have his Spirit abiding in them, John 14.23. They have been adopted by God as his children and are fellow heirs with Jesus.

Which option have you chosen?
