Who is the Boss over your mind? Where is your mind leading you? Death or Life and Peace. A dominated mind is controlled by the sinful nature. It thinks and does things sinful. Leads to death. A spirit controlled mind is controlled by the Holy Spirit. It thinks about things the please the spirit. Leads to life and peace. If your mind is dominated you can never please God. A spirit controlled mind that is controlled by the Spirit living in a person who has accepted Christ. Are you under the power of your old self telling you what to do? Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to tell you what to do?
