Freedom in the Spirit by the indwelling Christ
The law of the Spirit of life
There is 1now
then no 2condemnation
to those who are 3in
For the 1law
of the 2Spirit
has 4freed 5me
in Christ Jesus from the 6alaw
of sin and of death.
For that which the 1law
do, in that it was aweak
through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the 3likeness
of the flesh of sin and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh,
That the righteous requirement of the law might be 1fulfilled
in us, who do not 2awalk
according to the flesh but according to the 3spirit
For those who are according to the flesh mind the 1things
of the flesh; but those who are 2according
to the spirit, the 3things
of the Spirit.
mind set on the flesh is 2death

mind set on the spirit is 2alife
The indwelling Christ
Because the mind set on the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, for neither can it be.
who are 2in
the flesh cannot please God.
But you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if indeed the 1Spirit
of God 2dwells
in you. Yet 3if
anyone does not have the 4aSpirit
of Christ, he is not 5of
But if 1aChrist

because of sin, the 5spirit
because of 7righteousness
And if the 1Spirit
One who raised Jesus from the dead 3adwells
in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also 4bgive
life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you.
So then, brothers, we are debtors not to the flesh to 1live
according to the flesh;
For if you live according to the flesh, you must 1die
, but if by the Spirit you 2aput
to death the 3practices
of the body, you will live.
Heirs of glory
For as many as are 1led
by the 2Spirit
of God, these are 3asons
For you have not received a spirit of slavery bringing you
into fear again, but you have received a 1aspirit
of sonship in which we bcry
The Spirit Himself awitnesses 1with 2our bspirit
And if children, aheirs

indeed we bsuffer
that we may also be cglorified
For I 1consider
that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the coming aglory
to be revealed 2upon
For the 1anxious
watching of the creation eagerly awaits the 2revelation
of the sons of God.
For the creation was made subject to avanity
, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it,
In hope that the creation itself will also be 1freed
from the slavery of corruption into the freedom of the aglory
of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groans together and travails in pain together until now.
And not only so,
but we ourselves also, who have 1the
firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves 2groan
in ourselves, eagerly awaiting 3asonship
, the bredemption
of our body.
For we were saved in hope. But a ahope
that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly await it
like manner the Spirit also joins in to help us
in our 2weakness
, for we do not know for what we should pray as is fitting, but the Spirit Himself aintercedes
with groanings which cannot be uttered.
But He who searches the hearts knows what the 1mind
of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints 2according
And we know that 1all

to those who 4love
God, to those who are acalled
according to His 5purpose
Because those whom He 1foreknew
, He also 2apredestinated to be 3conformed
to the bimage
of His Son, that He might be the 4cFirstborn
among 5many dbrothers
And those whom He predestinated, these He also called; and those whom He called, these He also 1ajustified
; and those whom He justified, these He also 2bglorified
Heirs inseparable from God's love
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be
Indeed, He who did not spare His own Son, but adelivered
Him up for us all, how shall He not also with Him freely give us ball
Who shall bring a acharge
against God's chosen ones? 1It
is God who bjustifies
Who is he who condemns? 1It
is Christ Jesus who adied
and, rather, who bwas
raised, who is also 2cat
the right hand of God, who also 3dintercedes
Who shall separate us from the alove
of Christ? Shall tribulation or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?
As it is written, a
"For Your sake we are being bput
to death all day long; we have been accounted as sheep for slaughter.''
But in all these things we 1more
than conquer through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities nor things present nor things to come nor powers
Nor height nor depth nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the 1alove
of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
