Bible: Gal 5:16-24

5:16 But I say, live 1  by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh. 2  5:17 For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires 3  that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to 4  each other, so that you cannot do what you want. 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 5:19 Now the works of the flesh 5  are obvious: 6  sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, 7  hostilities, 8  strife, 9  jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, 10  factions, 5:21 envying, 11  murder, 12  drunkenness, carousing, 13  and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!

5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit 14  is love, 15  joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 16  5:23 gentleness, and 17  self-control. Against such things there is no law. 5:24 Now those who belong to Christ 18  have crucified the flesh 19  with its passions 20  and desires.
