But I say, 1walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify 2the desires of the flesh.
For 3the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, 4to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
But if you are 5led by the Spirit, 6you are not under the law.
Now 7the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, 8divisions,
envy,a drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that 9those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
But 10the fruit of the Spirit is 11love, joy, peace, patience, 12kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
2313gentleness, 14self-control; 15against such things there is no law.
And those who belong to Christ Jesus 16have crucified the flesh with its 17passions and desires.
If we live by the Spirit, 18let us also walk by the Spirit.
2619Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
