Romans 8: 10, 11: “And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” “Dead because of sin” refers not to physical death but to the “body of death.” The problem that Paul is dealing with in this passage is how the “dead” body, in which sin dwells, can be made the vehicle for expressing the life of God. The solution to the problem of the flesh is the Holy Spirit. He gives life to our mortal bodies. Being spiritually minded means, overcoming the deadness of the body and experiencing life and peace. This is the resurrection life.
