Romans 8:4-5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 So that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [Until we are walking, thinking, speaking, and acting according to how the Spirit directs us, we have not fulfilled the righteousness of the law; and so we are still subject to the Law of Sin and Death. A man who is prompted and energized by God in what to say and what to do, so that his every action and word is from loving obedience to God; truly such a man loves the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Deu 6:4-5; such a man fulfills the law and establishes the law, even greatly exceeding the law. From the Word of the Lord within: "Until you witness the law fulfilled in you, you are under the law."]

 5 For those who live according to the flesh, aim in satisfying things of the flesh; but those who live after the Spirit, aim to satisfy the things of the Spirit. [Flesh: fulfilling the lusts of the body and flesh, the thoughts of the carnal mind, and the evil imagination vs. Spirit: to think as the Spirit supplies thoughts, to speak only what is heard from the Spirit, and to do only what the Spirit shows you and energizes you to do.]
