Romans 8 : 1-5

Life in the Spirit
 1  So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.  2  And because you belong to him, the power [2]  of the life-giving Spirit has freed you [2]  from the power of sin that leads to death.  3  The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. [3]  So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin's control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.  4  He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.
   5  Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.
