What is a spiritually minded person?

We know this because the following verses develop the contrast between these mindsets in terms of their attitudes towards God and their final results. Unfortunately, many born-again believers who have the Holy Spirit in their hearts do not experience or manifest God's peace in their minds because they don't allow the Holy Spirit to control their minds. On the contrary, thinking about the Word of God becomes positive action, which becomes a godly habit, which becomes a fortress called the mind of Christ. You can belong to a spiritual group and follow the teachings with devotion, yet judge yourself and others in your daily life.

Being spiritually minded means letting Christ's word or teaching saturate, dominate, control, govern, direct, and guide your thoughts, words, emotions, and actions. I want us to see the world with spiritual eyes, whether it's sports and computers, politics and education, and eating out and celebrations, fashion and media and all that. If a joy cannot offer a sign of who God is and enjoy it more because of it, then it is non-spiritual joy. But if today you find yourself under the conviction that you have been walking after the flesh for a long time, that you have been thinking about the things of the flesh for too long, that they have become more important to you than God is, that they are more important than his word, his calling, his people, and his gospel, then you are in flesh and blood.

Unfortunately, many believers today are not spiritually minded but fleshly minded, and therefore do not experience or manifest God's peace in their born-again spirits. It is impossible for him to change and suddenly begin to cry over his rebellion, and begin to love God with all his heart and mind, confessing his sins and pleading for the death of God the Son as his atonement and the foundation of his forgiveness. Being born again does not automatically result in experiencing supernatural peace in the midst of the storm; rather, it is having a spiritual mindset or setting one's mind on the Spirit that guarantees a life of peace in spite of the storm. Likewise, despite being surrounded by the aggressive Syrian army with horses and chariots, Elisha was not restless, fearful or restless as his servant with him because he was spiritually minded; he could see beyond the natural.
