Romans, Chapter 8

8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.
8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made you free from the law of sin and of death.
8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
8:4 that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who don't walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
8:5 For those who are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but those who are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace:
8:7 because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be:
8:8 and those who are in the flesh can't please God.
8:9 But you+ are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you+. But if any man does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not of his.
8:10 And if Christ is in you+, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness.
8:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you+, he who raised up Christ from the dead will give life also to your+ mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you+.
8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh:
8:13 for if you+ live after the flesh, you+ must die; but if by the Spirit you+ put to death the activities of the body, you+ will live.
8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
8:15 For you+ didn't receive the spirit of slavery again to fear; but you+ received the spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit, that we are children of God:
8:17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified with [him].
8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
8:20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but by reason of him who subjected it, in hope
8:21 that the creation itself also will be delivered from the slavery of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God.
8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.
8:23 And not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan inside ourselves, waiting for [our] adoption, [to wit,] the redemption of our body.
8:24 For in hope were we saved: but hope that is seen is not hope: for who hopes for that which he sees?
8:25 But if we hope for that which we don't see, [then] we wait for it with patience.
8:26 And in like manner the Spirit also helps our infirmity: for we don't know how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit himself makes intercession for [us] with groanings which can't be uttered;
8:27 and he who searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.
8:28 And we know that to those who love God all things work together for good, to those who are called according to [his] purpose.
8:29 For whom he foreknew, he also preappointed [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers:
8:30 and whom he preappointed, those he also called: and whom he called, those he also justified: and whom he justified, those he also glorified.
8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us, who [is] against us?
8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how will he not also with him freely give us all things?
8:33 Who will lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God who justifies;
8:34 who is he that condemns? It is Christ Jesus who died, and what's more, who was raised, who also is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
8:35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 Even as it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
