Galatians 5:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another. So that you cannot do the things you wish. [The flesh with its lusts and pride wars against your soul, the Spirit of God, and the inner law of God in you heart. This war must be won by you to victory, the overcoming of sin, the world, and the devil — for you to attain freedom from sin and salvation. This can only occur if you do not do the things you wish; you must crucify your lusts and fleshly desires to then be guided in thoughts, words, and deeds by God. You must be led by the Spirit, following Him, which is doing His will, not yours; the man of flesh, your carnal mind, and your will must die on the inward cross of self-denial.]
