Therefore, there is now no condemnation1 for those who are in Christ Jesus,a22
because through Christ Jesus3 the law of the Spirit of life4 set me free5 from the law of sin6 and death.
For what the law was powerless7 to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature,b8 God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man9 to be a sin offering.c10 And so he condemned sin in sinful man,d4
in order that the righteous requirements11 of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.125
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires;13 but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.146
The mind of sinful mane is death,15 but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life16 and peace;
the sinful mindf is hostile to God.17 It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the sinful nature18 cannot please God.
