Please read Romans 8.
Verse 6 says that a mind that is set on flesh is death. A mind that is set on spirit is life. Not that those mindsets lead to those ends – they ARE those ends.
I can’t spend all of my time fighting death and find the result to be that I win life. I have to spend my time pursuing life, and by doing so, I will overcome death.
Verse 11 says that the Spirit Who raised Jesus from the dead will empower my flesh beyond death.
Chase Life. His name is Jesus!
