Living According to the Spirit

Those who are in Jesus Christ,
Shall not be judged as sinners:
For life and love sacrificed,
They will be declared winners.

For the Law of the Spirit,
Makes us free of death and sin;
And so we can inherit,
Salvation and cleansed within.

But what the law cannot do,
Through the flesh being so weak;
And temptations luring you,
For desires that you seek.

Death will be filling the mind,
As temptation takes control;
And causes you to be blind,
While it corrupts your soul.

But in Spirit through life and peace,
Being able to assist;
Till temptation starts to cease,
The mind can and will resist.
