Romans 8:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 For if you live according to the flesh [the sinful nature], you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body, you will live.4 [Therefore mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body which are of the earthly life; fornication, impurity, inordinate affections, evil lusts of the flesh, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Col 3:5. Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion. Eph 4:22]

1 John 3:8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]

 14 Since then the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part in the same nature; so that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil, [Christ's destruction of Satan is not a one-time event for Christ destroys the works of the devil in each believer, He crushes Satan under your feet, He destroys the spirit of Satan with brightness of His coming, and He consumes that spirit with the Spirit of His mouth, by which He frees you from the bondage of sin.]
