Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who are not walking according to the flesh.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has freed me from the law of sin and death.
For though this was impossible under the law, because it was weakened by the flesh, God sent his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and because of sin, in order to condemn sin in the flesh, so that the justification of the law might be fulfilled in us. For we are not walking according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.
For those who are in agreement with the flesh are mindful of the things of the flesh. But those who are in agreement with the spirit are mindful of the things of the spirit.
For the prudence of the flesh is death. But the prudence of the spirit is life and peace.
And the wisdom of the flesh is inimical to God. For it is not subject to the law of God, nor can it be.
So those who are in the flesh are not able to please God.
And you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if it is true that the Spirit of God lives within you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.
But if Christ is within you, then the body is indeed dead, concerning sin, but the spirit truly lives, because of justification.
But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead lives within you, then he who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead shall also enliven your mortal bodies, by means of his Spirit living within you.
And there were present, at that very time, some who were reporting about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate mixed with their sacrifices.
And responding, he said to them: “Do you think that these Galileans must have sinned more than all other Galileans, because they suffered so much?
No, I tell you. But unless you repent, you will all perish similarly.
And those eighteen upon whom the tower of Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they also were greater transgressors than all the men living in Jerusalem?
No, I tell you. But if you do not repent, you will all perish similarly.”
And he also told this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree, which was planted in his vineyard. And he came seeking fruit on it, but found none.
Then he said to the cultivator of the vineyard: ‘Behold, for these three years I came seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I have found none. Therefore, cut it down. For why should it even occupy the land?’
But in response, he said to him: ‘Lord, let it be for this year also, during which time I will dig around it and add fertilizer.
And, indeed, it should bear fruit. But if not, in the future, you shall cut it down.’ ”
