Our mind is known as an open battlefield. As a result, it’s the very thing that we have to place a great of emphasis on with respect to spiritual warfare due to the fact that how we deal with it will decide whether we’ll fall into the trap of the enemy or not. In fact, this place is so significant and strategic, it’s exactly where Satan along with his demonic spirits contend against the truth.
Living for Christ is an ongoing process that requires anything that pertains to our carnal nature to be left out completely. We can say that everything that had put us in the extremely unpleasant condition we once had been before God, which ultimately led Christ to come and die for us has to be abandoned completely at any cost. As the Word of God says, we must put to death the old version of ourselves for the sake of living for Jesus.
According to the Word of God, there are just two ways that men can live their lives. They can either live according to the flesh by following their own carnal nature, or live according to the Spirit of God by putting under control the insatiable desires of the flesh. In fact, the unregenerate person is very sensitive to their carnal nature, which is why they are more prone to follow their own sinful desires.
