Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires,
Moreover, keep me from committing flagrant sins; do not allow such sins to control me. Then I will be blameless, and innocent of blatant rebellion.
Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness?
but wrath and anger to those who live in selfish ambition and do not obey the truth but follow unrighteousness.
But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land before you, then those whom you allow to remain will be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your side, and will cause you trouble in the land where you will be living.
and he delivers them over to you and you attack them, you must utterly annihilate them. Make no treaty with them and show them no mercy!
But if you ever turn away and make alliances with these nations that remain near you, and intermarry with them and establish friendly relations with them,
At that time I also warned you, 'If you disobey, I will not drive out the Canaanites before you. They will ensnare you and their gods will lure you away.'"
so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For sin will have no mastery over you, because you are not under law but under grace.
But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members.
Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you.
(for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.
Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires.
For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.
For we who are alive are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our mortal body.
For we groan while we are in this tent, since we are weighed down, because we do not want to be unclothed, but clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
Now those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest
You were taught with reference to your former way of life to lay aside the old man who is being corrupted in accordance with deceitful desires,
But keep away from youthful passions, and pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love, and peace, in company with others who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
For we too were once foolish, disobedient, misled, enslaved to various passions and desires, spending our lives in evil and envy, hateful and hating one another.
But each one is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires.
Where do the conflicts and where do the quarrels among you come from? Is it not from this, from your passions that battle inside you?
Like obedient children, do not comply with the evil urges you used to follow in your ignorance,
Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul,
in that he spends the rest of his time on earth concerned about the will of God and not human desires.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
These people are grumblers and fault-finders who go wherever their desires lead them, and they give bombastic speeches, enchanting folks for their own gain.
For they said to you, "In the end time there will come scoffers, propelled by their own ungodly desires."
