5 For those who are living according to the flesh have their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are living according to the spirit have their minds on the things of the spirit.
6 Fleshly mindedness is death, but spiritual mindedness is life and peace.
7 Therefore fleshly mindedness is hostile to God; for it is not subject to the Law of God, nor can it be.
8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
But you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. If any one has not the Spirit of Christ, that man is not his.
For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap decay; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap life eternal.
But I say this, brethren, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor will decay inherit imperishability.
1 THERE is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has freed you from the Law of sin and death.
3 For, what was impossible for the Law, because it was weak through the flesh \'97 God, sending his own Son in the form of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned the sin that is in the flesh,
4 so that the righteousness required by the Law might be fulfilled in us who live not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.
I find then this rule, when I choose to do the right, that evil is present with me.
I delight in the Law in my inner man,
but I see another law in my members, warring with the law of my mind and leading me captive under the law of sin which is in my members.
Watch and pray so as not to enter into temptation. Your spirit is eager, but your flesh is weak."
I say, walk in the Spirit and you will not carry out the passions of the flesh.
for if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the practices of the body, you will live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For when we were in the flesh the sinful passions that arise through the Law were active in our members, so that we bore fruit to death.
The works of the flesh are obvious, such as unchastity, impurity, indecency,
idolatry, magic, hatred, strife, jealousy, anger, rivalries, dissensions, factions,
envyings, drinking bouts, revelries, and the like. Of these I tell you beforehand, as I have already told you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not let your freedom be an opportunity for the flesh, but in love be servants to one another.
for all that is in the world, the passions of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the show and pride of life, is not from the Father, but from the world.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its emotions and passions.
In him you were circumcised with a circumcision not done by hands, by laying aside your fleshly body in the circumcision of Christ.
The spirit is what gives life; the flesh is of no account. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.
What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.
