The spiritual mind rejoices in the abrupt change of the new life. Then it settles down to the hard work of spiritual growth.
The spiritual man may be fleshly (carnal, our fathers called it), but when it is borne in to his heart that it is so, he rises in fear and responds. The carnal man who realizes his carnality and rests in it is simply a carnal man.
The spiritual mind finds its limits – and then it rests. Psalm 131.
