Romans 8

Romans 8… day 13…

So then, brothers, we are debtors,
not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
Romans 8:12 ESV

Another translation says this a little clearer…
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation — 
but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it.
Romans 8:12 NIV
Yes… we are debtors… ones who owe another… 
but this obligation is not to the flesh…
In Christ… we now belong to Him…
…for you were bought with a price.
1 Corinthians 6:20 ESV
We no longer owe our flesh anything…
we are not obligated to give in to carnal cravings…
desires… or… emotions…
We do not have to live according to the flesh…
Don’t listen when someone tells you… 
Go ahead… you owe it to yourself…

No… you don’t…!
Your self… is the one who leads you to death…
For when we were in the realm of the flesh,
the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us,
so that we bore fruit for death.
Romans 7:5 NIV
We are free… to live according to the Spirit…
Free to pursue Him… into everlasting… life…
… So glorify God in your body…
1 Corinthians 6:20 ESV
