Section II - Understanding the Will of God


The Spirit

The Spirit should control Your Mind

When our soul is filled with the Spirit, and not the flesh, our mind is controlled by Christ’s and we are in His will. We accomplish this by doing His will and walking in the Light. Our mind is like the Holy of Holies and God dwells in us and we in Him.
