Mind, Will and Emotions

by Pastor Mike Winfree on April 27, 2023

Dear Church,


As we walk through this series– which you can watch on our YouTube channel to catch up or review, there should be two things that become crystal clear. Life is either lived in the flesh or the Spirit. Paul, in his epistles consistently uses the term “flesh” in reference to fallen human nature which can never conform to God’s holy expectations because it is mere human strength or energy. Romans 7:5 says, “For when we were in the flesh, the  sinful passions aroused through the law were working in us to bear fruit for death.” There is nothing good about our flesh, our old nature. Its goal is defeat and destruction. Romans 8:13 “Because if you live according to the flesh (mind, will, and emotions), you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Not only live but thrive in living. The abundant life. Maturing in Christ is the key to that abundant life.


I have said it and I will say it again, Mother’s are the second best thing God gave us. The first of course is Jesus Christ. Mother’s, we love you, and thank God for you. Thank you for all you do for your families. May God bless your special day. Don’t forget the breakfast on May 14 at 8:00 am. It is for Mothers only.


Church, let’s keep our eyes gazing at our Savior and Lord and remember, He is in control and we can trust His every move. God’s ways are not our ways, that is why we must pray and obey. See you Sunday ready to worship our Lord and King.


Serving the Savior,

Pastor Mike
