Romans 8 ©
Under the gospel we are free from condemnation, walking after the Spirit. The evil of being carnally minded, and the good of being spiritually minded. Christians have God's Spirit to guide and assist them; by which if they mortify the flesh, they shall live. For they that are led by the Spirit are sons of God, and heirs of glory; and even they who have the firstfruits of the Spirit do still long after it; the Spirit in the mean time aiding their infirmities in prayer. Nevertheless the final good of them that fear God is all along pursued, being foreordained of God, and brought about according to the course of his providence. The ground and assurance of the Christian's hope.
THERE is atherefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who bwalk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For fwhat the law could not do, gin that it was weak through the flesh, hGod sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and 1for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That ithe righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, jwho walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
uBut if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also vquicken your mortal bodies 5by his Spirit that wdwelleth in you.
eAnd if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; fif so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have nthe firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves ogroan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, *to wit, the predemption of our body.
But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: rfor we know not what we should pray for as we ought: sbut the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
And the that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, 7because uhe maketh intercession for the saints vaccording to the will of God.
And we know that wall things work together for good to them that love God, to them xwho are the ycalled according to his purpose.
zFor whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be aconformed to bthe image of his cSon, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover dwhom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also ejustified: and whom he justified, them he also fglorified.
hHe that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, ihow shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
lWho is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, mwho is even at the right hand of God, who also nmaketh intercession for us.
