To set the mind on the Spirit
is life and peaceas
There is therefore now no
condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
For the law of the Spirit of life has set you
free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
For God has done what the law, weakened by the
flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of
sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that the righteous requirement of the
law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on
the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit
set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to
set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile
to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot.
Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
You, however, are not in the flesh but in the
Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does
not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
But if Christ is in you, although the body is
dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the
dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will
also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells
