Faith based living – The law of sin and death wants to take out our body and soul through cycles and emotions from programs and agreements. But, because we have the mind of Christ – the Spirit of God – HE can renew our body and soul. Jesus sent His body to the earth and we get to use our bodies on this planet to receive all that is ours. Spirit. Soul. Body. Do our deeds have to be redeemed? How do we walk in the Spirit and cause our bodies and souls to be conformed into the image of Christ. Our bodies need Father to lead us and we need to follow Father SO THAT our physical bodies can live all the days we are supposed to on planet earth HEALTHY.
We get to live according to the Spirit – walk in the spirit – this is the place of no condemnation. Truth comes into us. Righteousness is fulfilled as we live according to the Spirit so we can be healthy and whole in soul and body. Receive and identify with His heart which is LIFE (not condemnation). When your mind is on the flesh, your mind is on the things of the flesh. Carnally minded is death. Spirit minded is life. But you cannot just talk about the spirit being life. You get to lean into life – One thing we can move forward in is by leaning into the Mind of the Spirit with life, health, healing and love. Living unoffended. Living forgiven. This is truly faith based…living from Love and forgiveness.
Focus your mind like flint on the spirit (not works) – the value of the blood – the value of Father, Son and Spirit inside you – being loved by Father – valuing our thoughts that oppose our Christ. Consider your thoughts and allow the thoughts not from God to slip away into His Spirit. Take no thought to what you eat, drink or wear. To be spiritual is to have the ability to take off the thoughts and emotions from carnality and non faith based living.
There is a process. There is a discipline. There is a governing from Christ.
Our minds are important. If Christ is in you then the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is righteous and alive. Our body has cycles and repetitive actions … that must be submitted to His spirit. We can be on repeat and not even know it.
So, now in the context of following the Spirit – How about we just choose not to be offended anymore? Honestly. We speak the truth in love and rock on. But getting angry and upset… It kills your physical body. Your body has biology that is responding to the trauma drama from pain and sickness and memories and limitations. We must have Jesus. We are dependent on HIM so we can press through these earthly soul limitations as well as our body being dead from sin. So, we get to redeem our bodies by the Spirit of God. Transfiguration is our inheritance. When you remain hurt over someone else’s opinion of you whether it is right or wrong…It knocks everything about your life out of kilter. Alignment is inheritance. Faith based living is the vehicle to identity and knowing Him.
You get out of alignment and when out of alignment, the enemy will separate you from the very thing God wants you to remain inside. Granted you are in Christ and nothing can separate you but you can feel divided, separated, unloved and unwanted. Not everybody is going to like you or me. Not everyone is going to understand your choices or understand your pain. People will be offended. You will get offended. But you can be responsible for you and lean into Life until it no longer happens as your response as you learn to have a supernaturally faith based life.
Condemning someone else doesn’t just put them Under the law but it puts you under the law as well. Feeling condemned by someone else puts you under the law and when you want to retaliate or run away from those that “made you” feel like that then it pushes them under the law as well. I wonder if sickness is part of the law?
Our physical realities must change too. Condemnation blocks and stops your life. If the spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you then you need the reality of the body being quickened with life. Our mortal bodies need life. LIFE to the physical realm for us. We are alive from righteousness. So, now the spirit inside of me and you spreads to others. We have life giving spirits and we must change our own patterns and problems because of His Spirit. Then, we can pour into others the same glorious inheritance. Lots of people live from a faith based life but it does not mean they have given themselves over to Him. WE can lead them through our own leaning into Christ.
The truth is that everybody is doing the best we can. Some people have a loudmouth and they’re going to shoot out stuff and crap from them that’s just not going to be pleasing or righteous. I think we should just ignore it and rock on. Let us look at one another through His life giving spirit. My body has issue but my spirit lives from righteousness to pour into my body and soul and change me and conform my biology into the image of Christ. Mind. Body. Soul. Spirit. Engage all of them. Engaged a faith based life.
Living according to the spirit. The law of sin and death inside of our bodies that is trapped into programs inside me – can be quickened by His Spirit. Put to death the deeds of the body. Put to death the agreements and programs from death. Discipline LIFE into you. Discipline is not works. Disciple your own soul, body and mind. Discipline to hear Him – meditation on Life and Love and Living all the days due to us.
If you want to increase your life – then you engage what God has given you so that you can obey with your mind, soul and body. Finances can change. The body can change. But they don’t change without our giving them our attention and disciplining ourselves in these area and pouring life into them. Doing comes from believing… and living out a faith based life.
