1Therefore there is nowno1condemnation for those who are 2in 3ChristJesus.
For 4the law of the Spirit of lifeain 5ChristJesus6has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
For 7what the Lawcould not do, b8weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His ownSon in 9the likeness of csinfulflesh and as an offering for sin, He condemnedsin in the flesh,
4so that the 10requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who 11do not walkaccording to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For those who are according to the fleshset their minds on 12the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, 13the things of the Spirit.
614For the mindset on the flesh is 15death, but the mindset on the Spirit is life and peace,
7because the mindset on the flesh is 16hostiletowardGod; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not evenable to do so,
and those who are 17in the fleshcannotpleaseGod.
9However, you are not 18in the flesh but in the Spirit, ifindeed the Spirit of God19dwells in you. But 20ifanyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
1021IfChrist is in you, though the body is deadbecause of sin, yet the spirit is dalivebecause of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of Him who 22raisedJesus from the deaddwells in you, 23He who raised24ChristJesus from the dead will alsogivelife to your mortalbodiesethrough His Spirit who dwells in you.
12Sothen, brethren, we are underobligation, not to the flesh, to liveaccording to the flesh -
for 25if you are livingaccording to the flesh, you fmustdie; but if by the Spirit you are 26putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
For allwho are 27being led by the Spirit of God, these are 28sons of God.
For you 29have not received a spirit of slaverygleading to fearagain, but you 30have receivedha spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "31Abba! Father!"
The SpiritHimself32testifies with our spirit that we are 33children of God,
and ifchildren, 34heirsalso, heirs of God and fellowheirs with Christ, 35ifindeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
For I consider that the sufferings of thispresenttime36are not worthy to be compared with the 37glory that is to be revealed to us.
For the 38anxiouslonging of the creationwaitseagerly for 39the revealing of the 40sons of God.
For the creation41was subjected to 42futility, not willingly, but 43because of Him who subjected it, iin hope21
that 44the creationitselfalso will be setfree from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the wholecreation45groans and suffers the pains of childbirthtogetheruntilnow.
2346And not only this, but also we ourselves, having47the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves48groanwithinourselves, 49waitingeagerly for our adoption as sons, 50the redemption of our body.
For 51in hope we have been saved, but 52hope that is seen is not hope; for whohopes for what he already sees?
But 53if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we waiteagerly for it.
