Romans 6:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 Do not allow sin to reign as king in your mortal body, that you would yield to its desires and serve its lusts and evil passions. [The Romans had been freed from sin, but they could still fall to temptation if they were not watchful; they had a perfection like Adam and Eve. They were yet to advance to the union with Christ as a son of God to be protected from ever sinning again.]

Galatians 5:24

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh [the sinful nature] with its passions and desires [lusts and affections].6 [After your sinful nature has been put to death on the inward cross of self-denial, then you belong to Christ as you walk in love, following the Spirit, fulfilling the law; and then you receive an imputed righteousness. Having suffered on the cross, you no longer live the rest of your time in the lusts of men, but you live to the will of God, 1 Pet 4:1-2; which is to be obediently led and guided by the Spirit in thoughts, words, and deeds. From the Word of the Lord within: "The purpose of this website is to teach you how to carry your cross."]
