Beloved brothers/sisters, greeting in the eternal name of Lord Jesus Christ !

For a person to achieve or posses something, the first thing that anyone needs to have is the desire. Greater the desire, the stronger the will to accomplish. A strong will with a complementing focused mind in the direction of the goal is the key. These series of actions are vital for any kind of success. Likewise we the children of God have an important question to answer. What do we desire and where do we set our minds on? As the Bible says in Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”. It is very clear that we are what we think in our hearts. Do we long for God and godly things? Are we heavenly-minded people? Do we seek and desire for the holy gifts of the God? If we are not seeking God and His spiritual gifts then we could only be going with the flow of the world. As the beloved children of God, we earnestly seek Him. But our sinful nature of our body does not allow us to continually seek God. For the body longs for the earthly things. But the Holy Spirit in us helps us to seek the living God. Rather than quenching the Spirit in us, let us submit ourselves as a living sacrifice to God. So let the desires of the flesh be subdued and greatly kindle the desires of the Spirit. Finally, let us set mind on the things that are from the living God and make it a point to thank Him in all things and glorify His name continually. Amen.
