Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:6

8:6 For to be carnally minded - That is, to mind the things of the flesh. Is death - The sure mark of spiritual death, and the way to death everlasting. But to be spiritually minded - That is, to mind the things of the Spirit. Is life - A sure mark of spiritual life, and the way to life everlasting. And attended with peace - The peace of God, which is the foretaste of life everlasting; and peace with God, opposite to the enmity mentioned in the next verse.

Shay's comment on 2013-12-13 09:02:07:

We can pursue 'minding of the spirit' by regularly setting our minds on the things of the spirit and allowing a spiritual inclination and attitude to develop in us. We want to build our life around a spirtual routine that includes regular prayer, Bible reading and study and worship of Jehovah God.
