"Worldly men have faith in their work;
Kingdom men work out their faith.
Worldly men cause others to know their methods;
Kingdom men cause others to know their God.
The success of worldly men
can be defined in certain observable methods—
methods that can be cataloged, emulated, and sold for profit.
The success of Kingdom men
is attributed to only one thing:
that one thing is obedience
to the spoken word of Yahweh.
Kingdom men are almost always
misunderstood, lonely, and rejected in their time—
most often remaining a voice crying in the desert.
They are recognized, honored, even revered—
but always by another generation,
never their own.
are content to be leaders of a remnant,
the keepers of the flame, the preservers of the seed,
the protectors of tomorrow’s Abrahams, Isaacs, Moses’
John the Baptists,
and yes, even the Christ." -F. Nolan Ball
“For the sense and reason of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace. In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot! For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh. But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of him.”
Romans 8:6-9 TPT
I am enamored by the mindset of Christ. I invite you to saturate yourself in the truth that the “mindset controlled by the spirit finds life and peace”.
