The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality,1 impurity and debauchery;
idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.2 I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.322
But the fruit4 of the Spirit is love,5 joy, peace,6 patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control.7 Against such things there is no law.824
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature9 with its passions and desires.1025
Since we live by the Spirit,11 let us keep in step with the Spirit.
Let us not become conceited,12 provoking and envying each other.
