Deliverance from Bondage

1 Therefore there is now no condemnation R334 for those who are in R335 Christ R336 Jesus. 2 For the R337 law of the Spirit of life in F137 Christ R338 Jesus has R339 set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what R340 the Law could not do, weak R341 F138 as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the R342 likeness of sinful F139 flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the requirement R343 of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do R344 not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the R345 things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the R346 things of the Spirit. 6 For R347 the mind set on the flesh is death, R348 but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile R349 toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in R350 the flesh cannot please God.

9 However, you are not in R351 the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells R352 in you. But if R353 anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 If R354 Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive F140 because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised R355 Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He R356 who raised Christ R357 Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through F141 His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh-- 13 for if R358 you are living according to the flesh, you must F142 die; but if by the Spirit you are putting R359 to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are being R360 led by the Spirit of God, these are sons R361 of God. 15 For you have R362 not received a spirit of slavery leading F143 to fear again, but you have R363 received a F144 spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! R364 Father!" 16 The Spirit Himself testifies R365 with our spirit that we are children R366 of God, 17 and if children, heirs R367 also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if R368 indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are R369 not worthy to be compared with the glory R370 that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious R371 longing of the creation waits eagerly for the R372 revealing of the sons R373 of God. 20 For the creation was R374 subjected to futility, R375 not willingly, but because R376 of Him who subjected it, in F145 hope 21 that the R377 creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans R378 and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And R379 not only this, but also we ourselves, having the R380 first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan R381 within ourselves, waiting R382 eagerly for our adoption as sons, the R383 redemption of our body. 24 For in R384 hope we have been saved, but hope R385 that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if R386 we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

Our Victory in Christ

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we R387 do not know how to pray as we should, but the R388 Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He R389 who searches the hearts knows what the R390 mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes R391 for the saints F146 according to the will of God.

28 And we know that God F147 causes all R392 things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called R393 according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, R394 He also predestined R395 to become conformed R396 to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn R397 among many brethren; 30 and these whom He predestined, R398 He also called; R399 and these whom He called, He also justified; R400 and these whom He justified, He also glorified. R401

31 What R402 then shall we say to these things? If R403 God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did R404 not spare His own Son, but delivered R405 Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against God's R406 elect? God R407 is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? R408 Christ Jesus is He who died, R409 yes, rather who was raised, R410 F148 who is at R411 the right hand of God, who also intercedes R412 for us. 35 Who will separate us from the R413 love of Christ? F149 Will tribulation, R414 or distress, or persecution, R415 or famine, R415 or nakedness, R415 or peril, R415 or sword? 36 Just as it is written, "FOR R416 YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." 37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer R417 through Him R418 who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, R419 nor life, nor angels, R420 nor principalities, nor things R419 present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the R421 love of God, which is in R422 Christ Jesus our Lord.
