Romans 8:6-9 (NET) For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace, because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him.
When Ugochukwu became born again, he realized that he was no longer comfortable with the things he used to do as an unbeliever. No one told him when he deleted most of the unwholesome videos on his phone. He just knew keeping them was wrong and dangerous to his new life in Christ. He also knew that the songs he had were no longer appropriate for him, so he deleted all the songs on his phone and laptop. He had a girlfriend and they were deeply in love, but he knew that the foundation that relationship and everything about it was sinful, so he called off the relationship.
Ugochukwu did all this because the Spirit of God was now within him and he yielded to the leading of the Spirit. He was told by the person who led him to Christ that yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only way to live this new born-again life.
One of the major things the Spirit of God will do within a believer is to change his outlook to life from that of the flesh to that of the Spirit. Every human being was born with the outlook of the flesh and lives to please himself. But when you become born again, by the word of God and the Spirit of God, that outlook is changed to one that seeks to please God.
—Abraham Damilola ArigiYBR: Psalms 60-62
