Romans 8:10

10 But if 1aChrist is 2in you, though the 3body is 4dead because of sin, the 5spirit is 6life because of 7righteousness.


105 The regenerated human spirit, in contrast to the fallen human body. This spirit is not the Spirit of God, for the spirit mentioned here is life only under the condition that Christ is in us. For the Spirit of God to be life, no particular condition is required. Hence, the spirit's being life because of righteousness can refer only to our human spirit, not to the Spirit of God.
