 Here are a few scriptures expounded on by Pastor D (GC Church, 11 May 2013) which have lead me to the topic :

Genesis 6:5-7
King James Version (KJV)
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

 Romans 7:24
King James Version (KJV)
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

 Romans 8:5-9
King James Version (KJV)
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
 A few things to reflect on :

 - Realize your outer nature is wasting away and inner nature must be renewed by setting your mind   on things that are above.

-Take radical steps to keep your mind pure.

- Remember Jesus’ warning about what chokes spiritual life: cares, riches and pleasures of life.

- Be friends with spiritually minded people.

- Ponder your life that will very soon be without a body.

- Think about how short life is.

- Remember you died with Christ and have crucified the flesh.

Being spiritually minded is a matter of life and death!
