So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
So I advise you to live according to your new life in the Holy Spirit. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God's Spirit. Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness.
But I say, Go on in the Spirit, and you will not come under the rule of the evil desires of the flesh.
Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
