Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are

in Christ Jesus

God sending his own Son

in the likeness of sinful man

He condemned sin

in sinful man

So that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met

in us.

 

Those who live

in accordance

with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature

but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives

in you.

But if Christ is

in you,

Your body is dead because of sin,

Yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living

in you

He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life

to your mortal bodies

Through his Spirit, who lives

in you.

 

We share

in his sufferings

in order that we may also share

in his glory.

 

The whole creation waits

in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice,

But by the will of the one who subjected it,

in hope that the creation itself will be liberated

from its bondage to decay.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as

in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

 

In the same way, the Spirit helps us

in our weakness

The Spirit intercedes for the saints

in accordance with God’s will

And we know that

in all things God works for the good of those who love him.

 

What, then, shall we say

in response to this?

 

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?

Who is he that condemns?

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

No,

in all these things we are more than conquerors

Through him who loved us.

I am convinced that neither death nor life,

neither angels nor demons,

neither the present nor the future,

nor any powers, neither height nor depth,

nor anything else in all creation,

will be able to separate us from the love of God that is

in Christ Jesus our Lord.
