Life through the Spirit

1IT follows that there is now no condemnation for those who are united with Christ Jesus.

2In Christ Jesus the life-giving law of the Spirit has set you free from the law of sin and death.

3What the law could not do, because human weakness robbed it of all potency, God has done: by sending his own Son in the likeness of our sinful nature and to deal with sin, he has passed judgement against sin within that very nature,

4so that the commandment of the law may find fulfilment in us, whose conduct is no longer controlled by the old nature, but by the Spirit.

5Those who live on the level of the old nature have their outlook formed by it, and that spells death; but those who live on the level of the spirit have the spiritual outlook, and that is life and peace.

6(8:5)

7For the outlook of the unspiritual nature is enmity with God; it is not subject to the law of God and indeed it cannot be;

8those who live under its control cannot please God.

9But you do not live like that. You live by the spirit, since God's Spirit dwells in you; and anyone who does not possess the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Christ.

10But if Christ is in you, then although the body is dead because of sin, yet the Spirit is your life because you have been justified.

11Moreover, if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then the God who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give new life to your mortal bodies through his indwelling Spirit.

12It follows, my friends, that our old nature has no claim on us; we are not obliged to live in that way.

13If you do so, you must die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the base pursuits of the body, then you will live.

14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

15The Spirit you have received is not a spirit of slavery, leading you back into a life of fear, but a Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry “Abba! Father!”

16The Spirit of God affirms to our spirit that we are God's children;

17and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow-heirs with Christ; but we must share his sufferings if we are also to share his glory.

18For I reckon that the sufferings we now endure bear no comparison with the glory, as yet unrevealed, which is in store for us.

19The created universe is waiting with eager expectation for God's sons to be revealed.

20It was made subject to frustration, not of its own choice but by the will of him who subjected it, yet with the hope

21that the universe itself is to be freed from the shackles of mortality and is to enter upon the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22Up to the present, as we know, the whole created universe in all its parts groans as if in the pangs of childbirth.

23What is more, we also, to whom the Spirit is given as the firstfruits of the harvest to come, are groaning inwardly while we look forward eagerly to our adoption, our liberation from mortality.

24It was with this hope that we were saved. Now to see something is no longer to hope: why hope for what is already seen?

25But if we hope for something we do not yet see, then we look forward to it eagerly and with patience.

26In the same way the Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness. We do not even know how we ought to pray, but through our inarticulate groans the Spirit himself is pleading for us,

27and God who searches our inmost being knows what the Spirit means, because he pleads for God's people as God himself wills;

28and in everything, as we know, he co-operates for good with those who love God and are called according to his purpose.

29For those whom God knew before ever they were, he also ordained to share the likeness of his Son, so that he might be the eldest among a large family of brothers;

30and those whom he foreordained, he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

31With all this in mind, what are we to say? If God is on our side, who is against us?

32He did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all; how can he fail to lavish every other gift upon us?

33Who will bring a charge against those whom God has chosen? Not God, who acquits!

34Who will pronounce judgement? Not Christ, who died, or rather rose again; not Christ, who is at God's right hand and pleads our cause!

35Then what can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or hardship? Can persecution, hunger, nakedness, danger, or sword?

36“We are being done to death for your sake all day long,” as scripture says; “we have been treated like sheep for slaughter” --

37and yet, throughout it all, overwhelming victory is ours through him who loved us.

38For I am convinced that there is nothing in death or life, in the realm of spirits or superhuman powers, in the world as it is or the world as it shall be, in the forces of the universe,

39in heights or depths -- nothing in all creation that can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
