Romans 8:12-17 NAS
So then, brethren, we are
under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh for if
you are living according to the flesh you must die; but if by the Spirit
you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For
all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but
you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out,
"Abba! Father!" The Spirit Himself testifies with
our spirit that we are children of God, and if children of God, and if
children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if we
indeed suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
