Walk by the Spirit

1 a1It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore 2keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a 3yoke of slavery. 2 Behold I, 4Paul, say to you that if you receive 5circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 And I 6testify again to every man who receives 7circumcision, that he is under obligation to 8keep the whole Law. 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who bare seeking to be justified by law; you have 9fallen from grace. 5 For we cthrough the Spirit, dby faith, are 10waiting for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in 11Christ Jesus 12neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but 13faith working through love. 7 You were 14running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion did not come from 15Him who calls you. 9 16A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. 10 17I have confidence ein you in the Lord that you 18will adopt no other view; but the one who is 19disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. 11 But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still 20persecuted? Then 21the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished. 12 I wish that 22those who are troubling you would even f23mutilate themselves. 13 For you were called to 24freedom, brethren; 25only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love 26serve one another. 14 For 27the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "28YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." 15 But if you 29bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. 16 But I say, 30walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out 31the desire of the flesh. 17 For 32the flesh gsets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, 33so that you may not do the things that you hplease. 18 But if you are 34led by the Spirit, 35you are not under the Law. 19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: i36immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, 37sorcery, enmities, 38strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, 39disputes, dissensions, j40factions, 21 envying, 41drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not 42inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But 43the fruit of the Spirit is 44love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, 45self-control; against such things 46there is no law. 24 Now those who kbelong to 47Christ Jesus have 48crucified the flesh with its passions and 49desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also lwalk 50by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become 51boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
