Where then is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By one of works? No, on the contrary, by a law of faith.
Therefore if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.
Now if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through His Spirit who lives in you.
Jesus answered, "If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would ask Him, and He would give you living water."
But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again-- ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life."
The Spirit is the One who gives life. The flesh doesn't help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.
The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him."
He said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been received, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

He has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit produces life.

Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
and having been liberated from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.
But now, since you have been liberated from sin and become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification-- and the end is eternal life!
Restore the joy of Your salvation to me, and give me a willing spirit.
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
For through the law I have died to the law, that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ;
Christ has liberated us into freedom. Therefore stand firm and don't submit again to a yoke of slavery.
so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness, resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So I discover this principle: when I want to do good, evil is with me.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I myself am a slave to the law of God, but with my flesh, to the law of sin.
