5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The sinful mind is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not controlled by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, 14 because
those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
Romans 8; 5-14
( Wow! , such changes in the word of God by the way, I have NIV from 1983 and the wording is very different from the one which is online. The words sinful nature were changed in all places into – the flesh as well as a few other words. I do not about you, but to me the words – sinful nature or sinful mind – do not sound the same as flesh. Very disturbing, all the changes in the bible, beware). Always keep the old King James bible with you. Do not buy the new one, you can understand easily what the old one says. And English is not my native language, so if I can, you can understand it too.
This is a second message of that kind, looks like God is trying to speak to us and wake us from slumber. We have to remember this is war, not just easy going Christianity, not just coming to church on Sunday, we are required to do much more than this.
