Romans 8:1–11 – There is No Condemnation
1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus,
2 because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.
3 What the law could not do since it was weakened by the flesh, GOD DID. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh as a sin offering,
4 in order that the law’s requirement would be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

HOW CAN I GET THERE?
5 For those who live according to the FLESH have their minds set on the things of the FLESH, but those who live according to the Spirit have their minds set on the things of the SPIRIT.
6 Now the mind-set of the FLESH is death, but the mind-set of the SPIRIT is life and peace.
7 The mind-set of the FLESH is hostile to God because it does not submit to God’s law. Indeed, it is unable to do so.
8 Those who are in the FLESH cannot please God.

Pursues God With Their Thoughts
Pursue God With Their Life & Peace
9 You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.
10 Now if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then he who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through his Spirit who lives in you.
