Romans 8:1-8 (backwards)
8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
8 – Condemned
7 – Hostile
6 – Death vs. Life
5 – Flesh vs. Spirit
3-4 – God has done what law could not do, Mercy vs. Grace
2 – Law of spirit of life vs. Law of sin and death
1 – No condemnation for those who are in
What I do does not determine who I am. Who I am determines what I do.
