We have a tendency to make the Christian life complicated and mysterious. Fortunately it is far simpler than most folks realize. Take walking in the Spirit as one example. The Bible says the way we live according to the Spirit is by shifting our mindset. The dictionary says your mindset is your intention or inclination. Where you focus your attention determines your intention. Your mind is set on whatever occupies your attention. When you look to Jesus instead of looking to whatever problem or hassle you have in front of you at the moment, that's when you are walking in the Spirit. Focus on Jesus. Make Him the center of your attention instead of your problem because He is the embodiment of your solution. The more you focus on Jesus, the more you will find His answers to your problems. Then you will come to realize how easy His yoke is and how light He makes every one of your burdens.
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.— Romans 8:5 (WEB)
