Bible: Rom 7:5-6

7:5 For when we were in the flesh, 1  the sinful desires, 2  aroused by the law, were active in the members of our body 3  to bear fruit for death. 7:6 But now we have been released from the law, because we have died 4  to what controlled us, so that we may serve in the new life of the Spirit and not under the old written code. 5
