“For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.”
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Every member of God’s kingdom is ordained to be a giant Matt. 5:13-14; Lk. 1:31-32; Jn. 17:18. But this is not automatic; there is always the scriptural demand to every kingdom provision. A fundamental demand of scripture for emergence as a giant in the kingdom is spirituality Rms. 8:6; 1Tim. 4:7-8.
What is Spirituality?
It is having the Spirit of God in total control of one’s life.
God’s word is Spirit, the Holy Spirit in written form Jn. 6:63.
For instance, the law of the Spirit says there is only one tribe in the church, which is the tribe of Judah Rev. 4:5; Rms. 8:17. Whereas the law of the flesh recognizes different natural tribes in the church; Efik, Qua, Ibo, Yoruba etc, the law of the Spirit refutes this 1Cor. 3:4.
4. The opposite of spirituality is carnality 1Cor. 3:1-3.
Carnality is simply to walk as men; for instance, when a believer says “as a man what can I do” is a clear indication of carnality.
The Significance of Spirituality.
Examples of Spirituality-made men in Scriptures.
He prospered in life on the platform of his spirituality, and not by reason of his family background.
The exploits of his life has the root in his spirituality, and not his smartness.
His greatness has its root in his spirituality.
Covenant Ways to Build Spirituality.
This is the starting point, where the power to do the other things is released. Decision is of the heart, and spirituality also has its root in the heart. It becomes easy therefore when the heart is made for spirituality to accomplish it.
The more we do this, the more the Spirit of God in the word fills our lives.
The place of prayer is the place of fellowship with God, the Father of spirits. We are imparted with the same Spirit as we engage in prayer Heb. 12:9.
Until we have hatred for sin, striving for spirituality may never be fruitful.
Your company will determine what becomes of you.
When you see a believer that does not consciously put rules in place over his life, he is a believer that won’t have a clean spiritual walk.
You can’t be after pleasing men, and be spiritual.
To be spiritual, you must have total control of your time; minutes, hours, days etc. Every moment must be purposefully engaged towards your spirituality and productivity in life.
Enemy of Spirituality.
We must fight our flesh if we truly love to walk in the spirit.
In conclusion, walking in the spirit is possible! It is the secret to the world of exploits, which redemption promised the believer. I decree the grace for spirituality is released on you now!
