Verses:

Rom. 8:6 “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.”

 

Excerpts:

God through the Holy Spirit lives in our spirit. The intuition in our spirit is the feeling of God. When we live by the intuition, we are ruled by [God]. The conscience has only the feeling of right and wrong. It condemns all that is wrong and evil and justifies all that is right and good. But the intuition is above right and wrong, good and evil. It condemns all that is wrong and all that is evil, but it does not necessarily approve all that is right and all that is good. It accepts only that which is of God.

 

[For example], what God desires is that we speak His words. When a brother ministers, whether he is speaking the truth or not will be attended to by the conscience. But as to what he should minister, what God has in mind for him to speak—these are not within the limit of right and wrong, good and evil. The feeling of the conscience is unable to do anything in this respect. Only through the intuition can one be led by God to speak His words.

 

Many brothers and sisters are living in a condition that is a combination of the three kinds of government. The greater part of their being is under human rule; they still need to be ruled by man. Another part of their being is under self-rule, the rule of the conscience. But only a small part of their being is under God’s rule so that they are controlled by God directly. There is the need to deal with the conscience more thoroughly so that we can, on the negative side, be delivered from human rule and, on the positive side, enter into God’s rule to be directly under His control.
(The Experience of Life, ch. 6)
