To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit[a] is life and peace.(A) For this reason the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law—indeed, it cannot,(B) and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit,[b] since the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.(C) 10 But if Christ is in you, then the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit[c] is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus[d] from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through[e] his Spirit that dwells in you.(D)
