For the cravings of the lower nature are opposed to those of the Spirit, and the cravings of the Spirit are opposed to those of the lower nature; because these are antagonistic to each other, so that you cannot do everything to which you are inclined.
But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not subject to Law.
Now you know full well the doings of our lower natures. Fornication, impurity, indecency, idol-worship, sorcery;
enmity, strife, jealousy, outbursts of passion, intrigues, dissensions, factions, envyings;
hard drinking, riotous feasting, and the like. And as to these I forewarn you, as I have already forewarned you, that those who are guilty of such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God.
The Spirit, on the other hand, brings a harvest of love, joy, peace; patience towards others, kindness, benevolence;
good faith, meekness, self-restraint.
Against such things as these there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their lower nature with its passions and appetites.
If we are living by the Spirit's power, let our conduct also be governed by the Spirit's power.
Let us not become vain-glorious, challenging one another, envying one another.
