because the Spirit's law of life in Christ Jesus has set youa free from the law of sin and of death.
What the law could not do since it was limitedb by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin's domain,c and as a sin offering,d4
in order that the law's requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For those whose lives aree according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh, but those whose lives aref according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit.
For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace.
For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God's law, for it is unable to do so.
Those whose lives areg in the flesh are unable to please God.
You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, sinceh the Spirit of God lives in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
Now if Christ is in you, the body is deadi because of sin, but the Spiritj is life because of righteousness.
And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life throughk His Spirit who lives in you.
