Romans 8:7Romans 8:13

2. The Indwelling Christ

7 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.

8 And 1those who are 2in the flesh cannot please God.

9 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 Him.

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

11 And if the 1Spirit of 2the 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 3indwells you.

12 So then, brothers, we are debtors not to the flesh to 1live according to the flesh;

13 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.
