Romans 8:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh. But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life,[a] you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of him.[b]

10 Now Christ lives his life in you! And even though your body may be dead because of the effects of sin, his life-giving Spirit imparts life to you because you are fully accepted by God.[c]

Footnotes:

  3. Romans 8:10 The Aramaic can be translated “for the cause of righteousness.”
