the sinful minda is hostile to God.1 It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the sinful nature2 cannot please God.
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature3 but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.4 And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,5 he does not belong to Christ.
But if Christ is in you,6 your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead7 is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies8 through his Spirit, who lives in you.
Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.913
For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die;10 but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body,11 you will live,1214
because those who are led by the Spirit of God13 are sons of God.1415
For you did not receive a spirit15 that makes you a slave again to fear,16 but you received the Spirit of sonship.b And by him we cry, ""Abba,"c Father."1716
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit18 that we are God's children.1917
Now if we are children, then we are heirs20--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings21 in order that we may also share in his glory.22
