For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the
flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh,
and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness
of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.
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. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because
of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in
you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren,
we are debtors not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live
after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
