For I delight in the law of god after the inward man. That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us. who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded i s life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be so. So, then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the spirit of God dwell in you now if any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none his.
And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is life because of righteousness.
On a beautiful, warm January morning, a colleague and I were having breakfast in an outdoor coffee shop at MacRitchie Reservoir Park in Singapore. with a beautiful lake and immaculate gardens surrounding us and a light breeze blowing across the water, the setting was quiet, calm, and lovely.
