Those in Christ who walk not after the flesh: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).



2. What did the law of the Spirit of life in Christ do?

Set man free from the law of sin and death: For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2).



3. What weakness was there in the law?

Weak in the flesh in that it was carnal: For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh” (Romans 8:3).



4. In whom is the righteousness of the law fulfilled?

Us”, contextually the church in Rome (cf. Romans 1:7), Christians: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:4).



5. Would it be correct to say that carnally minded people cannot obey God?

Yes: (5) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (6) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (7) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be (8) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:5-8).



6. If you are in Christ what had to die so that you could be spiritually alive?

The deeds of the flesh: (9) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. (13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Romans 8:9-13).
