16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will
not gratify the desires of the sinful
17For the sinful nature desires what is
contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what
is contrary to the sinful nature. They are
in conflict with each other, so that you
do not do what you want.
18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are
not under law.
19The acts of the sinful nature are
obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and
20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord,
jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition,
21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and
the like. I warn you, as I did before, that
those who live like this will not inherit the
kingdom of God.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
23gentleness and self-control. Against
such things there is no law.
24Those who belong to Christ Jesus
have crucified the sinful nature with its
passions and desires.
