There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.a2
For the law of 1the Spirit of life 2has set youb free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
For 3God has done what the law, 4weakened by the flesh, 5could not do. 6By sending his own Son 7in the likeness of sinful flesh and 8for sin,c he condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that 9the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, 10who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For 11those who live according to the flesh set their minds on 12the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on 13the things of the Spirit.
For to set 14the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
For the mind that is set on the flesh is 15hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; 16indeed, it cannot.
Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact 17the Spirit of God dwells in you. 18Anyone who does not have 19the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
