Main Scriptures: Romans 8:6

More Scriptures: Gal.6:8, Jn.3:6, 1Cor.2:14

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be CARNALLY minded is death, but to be SPIRITUALLY minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So, then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (Rom.8:5-8).

Yesterday, the Person of the Holy Spirit helped husbands to understand that spirituality is the cure for carnality. No husband overcomes the power of the flesh by the arm of flesh. Every husband who wants to have victory over the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life must continue to engage the force of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. For you to overcome filthiness of the tongue, lying and deceit, cheating, fornication and adultery, and all forms of ungodliness, you must step up your spirituality. Carnality is beyond the fact that you are a pastor of your church or founder of your ministry or even born again for long. You can be any of these and yet live a carnal life.

Today, I want to share with every husband the benefits of being spiritual and staying spiritual. In Rom.8:6, the Scriptures say for to be carnally minded is DEATH but to be spiritually minded is LIFE and PEACE (Rom.8:6). From this verse of Scripture, you will notice that if you are carnal, it will lead to death, both physically and spiritually. You will find your once vibrant children who before now were burning for God suddenly find the things of the Spirit irritating. They no longer have interest in prayers, word study. They no longer cherish the godly values they have grown up to meet. And when you put all these together, you will realize that your children have become wayward and a burden on you and your name. A lot of the time, if only the husbands have been spiritual, they would have stopped the death of their children. Perhaps your children should not have attended that school or associated with those friends, if you were spiritual. Your carnality deprives you of the power to lead your wife and children in the way that they should go- journeys and places to go, who they relate with and how they should live. You must have the capacity to see ahead of your sheep so that you can help them out of dangers that they may not see. That is your heritage as the head of the family. When you live a spiritual life, the end for you, your wife and children is life and peace. This means that you would have put your wife and children in good stead in their spirit, soul and body. With your spirituality, you can protect yourself, your wife and children from satanic attacks, hence you do not end up as a widower or fatherless. I can tell of how, on several occasions that my children and wife would have been molested by the devil if not for the grace of spirituality. Husbands, enough of carnality. Let’s be spiritual. It is the security that you, your wife and children need to live a triumphant life.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to live by Your Spirit in all that I do.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to overcome every force of carnality in my life.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, let my life reflect Your character before all.


I live by the dictates of the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus because that is the master key to becoming a good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen
