The law of Christ brings life and peace—Those adopted as children of God become joint heirs with Christ—God’s elect are foreordained to eternal life—Christ makes intercession for man.
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who not after the , but after the .
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful , and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the .
5 For they that are after the flesh do the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be minded is ; but to be minded is life and .
7 Because the mind is against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are cannot please God.
9 ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the of God in you. Now if any man have not the , he is none of his.
10 And if be in you, body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of .
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also your bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye : but if ye through the Spirit do the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are by the of God, they are the of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of , whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth with our , that we are the of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the which shall be revealed .
19 For the of the waiteth for the of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to , not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the itself also shall be from the bondage of into the glorious of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, have the of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the , to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by : but hope that is is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
26 Likewise the Spirit also our infirmities: for we know not what we should for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh for us with which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 whom he did , he also the of his Son, that he might be the among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he , them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can ?
32 He that spared not his own , but him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us things?
33 Who shall any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the of Christ? shall , or distress, or , or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are all the day long; we are accounted as for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are than through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to us from the of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
