The Spiritual Mind
The spiritual mind is set on the things of the next life, on the living out of faith and in preparation for the eternal home which is to come. The Son of Man did not teach us to forsake all, other than those chosen apostles who were required to give up everything for their chosen mission to bear the good news after Joshua was gone from this earth. He taught us by his life that the eternal pursuit was the most important thing on earth: seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and its righteousness and all things will be added unto you.
He taught us not to worry about the basic necessities of life such as food and clothing and to seek the kingdom. If we would follow after him in sincere service and devotion to our fellow man, if we would make the supreme desire to do his will the centerpiece of our life, then he would take care of our basic needs in life.
And the resulting fruit of the spirit of such a life of devotion would fill us with peace and the inner satisfaction of a life fulfilled in serving others.
We have been instructed to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, to move into the higher realm of relationship with the Father in the supreme desire to do his will. We cannot fake righteousness or act holy in the hopes we would be holy. Holiness is gained by a life dedicated to doing of the Father’s will.
