The People of the Kingdom
(Category 15 of 16)
Freed from the Law
1 Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law 1has dominion over a man as long as he lives?
2 For athe woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband.
3 So then aif, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man.
4 Therefore, my brethren, you also have become adead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bbear fruit to God.
5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law awere at work in our members bto bear fruit to death.
6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve ain the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.
Sin’s Advantage in the Law
7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, aI would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, b“You shall not covet.”
8 But asin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For bapart from the law sin was dead.
9 I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
10 And the commandment, awhich was to bring life, I found to bring death.
11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.
12 Therefore athe law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.
Law Cannot Save from Sin
13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, asold under sin.
15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. aFor what I will to do,

that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.
16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.
17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
18 For I know that ain me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.
19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.
20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.
22 For I adelight in the law of God according to bthe inward man.
23 But aI see another law in bmy members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me afrom this body of death?
25 aI thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
Free from Indwelling Sin
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, awho1 do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
2 For athe law of bthe Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from cthe law of sin and death.
3 For awhat the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, bGod did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,
4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who ado not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 For athose who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, bthe things of the Spirit.
6 For ato be 1carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because athe 1carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, bnor indeed can be.
8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of aHim who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, bHe who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies 1through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Sonship Through the Spirit
12 aTherefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
13 For aif you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you bput to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14 For aas many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
15 For ayou did not receive the spirit of bondage again bto fear, but you received the cSpirit of adoption by whom we cry out, d“Abba,1 Father.”
16 aThe Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17 and if children, then aheirs— heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, bif indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
From Suffering to Glory
18 For I consider that athe sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For athe earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For athe creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of 1corruption into the glorious aliberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation agroans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
23 Not only that, but we also who have athe firstfruits of the Spirit, beven we ourselves groan cwithin ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the dredemption of our body.
24 For we were saved in this hope, but ahope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For awe do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but bthe Spirit Himself makes intercession 1for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 Now aHe who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the

Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints baccording to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those awho are the called according to His purpose.
29 For whom aHe foreknew, bHe also predestined cto be conformed to the image of His Son, dthat He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also acalled; whom He called, these He also bjustified; and whom He justified, these He also cglorified.
God’s Everlasting Love
31 What then shall we say to these things? aIf God is for us, who can be against us?
32 aHe who did not spare His own Son, but bdelivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? aIt is God who justifies.
34 aWho is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, bwho is even at the right hand of God, cwho also makes intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written:
a“For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 aYet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor aprincipalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
