<< John 3:6 >>



  • Galatians 5:16-21
    So I say, live by the Holy Spirit’s power. Then you will not do what your desires controlled by sin want you to do.The desires controlled by sin do not want what the Spirit delights in. And the Spirit does not want what the desires controlled by sin delight in. The two are at war with each other. That’s why you are not supposed to do whatever you want.But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the authority of the law.The result of sin’s control in our lives is clear. It includes sexual sins, impure acts and wild living.It includes worshiping statues of gods and worshiping evil powers. It also includes hatred and fighting, jealousy and fits of anger. Sinful desire is interested only in getting ahead. It stirs up trouble. It separates people into their own little groups.It wants what others have. It gets drunk and takes part in wild parties. It does many things of that kind. I warn you now as I did before. People who live like this will not receive God’s kingdom.
  • Romans 8:4-9
    Jesus does for us everything the holy law requires. The power of sin should no longer control the way we live. The Holy Spirit should control the way we live.So don’t live under the control of sin. If you do, you will think about what sin wants. Live under the control of the Holy Spirit. If you do, you will think about what the Spirit wants.The thoughts of a person ruled by sin bring death. But the mind ruled by the Spirit brings life and peace.The mind ruled by the power of sin is at war with God. It does not obey God’s law. It can’t.Those who are under the power of sin can’t please God.But you are not ruled by the power of sin. Instead, the Holy Spirit rules over you. This is true if the Spirit of God lives in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Christ.
  • Ezekiel 36:26-27
    I will give you new hearts. I will give you a new spirit that is faithful to me. I will remove your stubborn hearts from you. I will give you hearts that obey me.I will put my Spirit in you. I will make you want to obey my rules. I want you to be careful to keep my laws.
  • 2 Corinthians 5 17
    When anyone lives in Christ, the new creation has come. The old is gone! The new is here!
  • 1 Corinthians 6 17
    But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one with him in spirit.
  • Ezekiel 11:19-20
    I will give my people hearts that are completely committed to me. I will give them a new spirit that is faithful to me. I will remove their stubborn hearts from them. And I will give them hearts that obey me.Then they will follow my rules. They will be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people. And I will be their God.
  • Job 25:4
    How can human beings be right with God? How can mere people really be pure?
  • Job 14:4
    Who can bring what is pure from something that isn’t pure? No one!
  • Romans 8:13
    If you live under the power of sin, you will die. But by the Spirit’s power you can put to death the sins you commit. Then you will live.
  • Ephesians 2:3
    At one time we all lived among them. Our desires were controlled by sin. We tried to satisfy what they wanted us to do. We followed our desires and thoughts. God was angry with us like he was with everyone else. That’s because of the kind of people we all were.
  • 1 Corinthians 15 47-1 Corinthians 15 50
    The first man came from the dust of the earth. The second man came from heaven.Those who belong to the earth are like the one who came from the earth. And those who are spiritual are like the heavenly man.We are like the earthly man. And we will be like the heavenly man.Brothers and sisters, here is what I’m telling you. Bodies made of flesh and blood can’t share in the kingdom of God. And what dies can’t share in what never dies.
  • Genesis 6:12

  • Colossians 2:11

  • Romans 7:18
    I know there is nothing good in my desires controlled by sin. I want to do what is good, but I can’t.
  • John 1:13
    To be a child of God has nothing to do with human parents. Children of God are not born because of human choice or because a husband wants them to be born. They are born because of what God does.

    Those who are God’s children will not keep on sinning. God’s very nature remains in them. They can’t go on sinning. That’s because they are God’s children.

  • Romans 7:25-8:1
    I give thanks to God who saves me. He saves me through Jesus Christ our Lord. So in my mind I am a slave to God’s law. But sin controls my desires. So I am a slave to the law of sin.Those who belong to Christ Jesus are no longer under God’s judgment.
  • Romans 7:5

  • Job 15:14-16
    “ Can human beings really be pure? Can those who are born really be right with God?God doesn’t trust his holy angels. Even the heavens aren’t pure in his sight.So he’ll certainly find fault with human beings. After all, they are evil and sinful. They drink up evil as if it were water.
