Main point summary
The law of the Spirit of life does two things the law of sin and death could not do: (1) free from condemnation and (2) create a people who submit to God's law.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 1
For the law of h the Spirit of life i has set you 1 free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
For j God has done what the law, k weakened by the flesh, l could not do.
m By sending his own Son n in the likeness of sinful flesh and o for sin, 1
he condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that p the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us,
q who walk not according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.
For r those who live according to the flesh set their minds on s the things of the flesh,
but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on t the things of the Spirit.
For to set u 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 v hostile to God,
for it does not submit to God’s law;
w 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 x the Spirit of God dwells in you.
y Anyone who does not have z the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
