Therefore, there is now no condemnation1 for those who are in Christ Jesus,a22
because through Christ Jesus3 the law of the Spirit of life4 set me free5 from the law of sin6 and death.
For what the law was powerless7 to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature,b8 God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man9 to be a sin offering.c10 And so he condemned sin in sinful man,d4
in order that the righteous requirements11 of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.125
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires;13 but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.146
The mind of sinful mane is death,15 but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life16 and peace;
the sinful mindf is hostile to God.17 It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the sinful nature18 cannot please God.
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature19 but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.20 And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,21 he does not belong to Christ.
But if Christ is in you,22 your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead23 is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies24 through his Spirit, who lives in you.
Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.2513
For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die;26 but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body,27 you will live,28
