Romans 8:6, For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
The mind is the leading part of the soul, and the soul is our very being, our self. The body is not the self or our being, but an outward organ. The spirit isn’t the self or our being either, but an inward organ, we are a being a human being a soul. The soul is being with two organ, the outward organ of the body and the inward organ of the spirit, our being, our self, is the soul. This is why the Scripture reveals that the soul is the self in Matthew 16:24-25, Then said Jesus unto his disciples, It any man will come after me, let him deny himself, snd take up his cross, and follow me. For what is man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and loss his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul. And that a human being , person, is called soul, and all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls for Joseph was in Egypt already. If I call you a body, that is wrong, and If I call you a spirit, this is also wrong, A man is not a body or a spirit, but a soul.
The soul is your self, your being, and the mind is the leading part of your being representing your self. The mind represents the self, the body is the flesh, and our spirit. Thee Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: In our spirit is the Triune God as the all inclusive life giving spirit. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Within us there are three parties: satan as sin is in our flesh, and God is in our spirit and the self is in our soul represented by our mind. To set the mind on the flesh means to take sides with the flesh, to cooperate with the flesh to stand with the flesh. To set the mind on the flesh is death. To set the mind on the spirit means to take sides with the spirit, to cooperate with the spirit, to stand with the spirit.
To set the mind on the spirit is life and peace.
