Second Reading for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Romans 8:9, 11-13

Summary: Live by the Spirit, not by the flesh. The Spirit of God in you gives life, just as it raised Jesus. Avoid fleshly desires to gain true life.

Life in the Spirit

Brothers and sisters:

You are not in the flesh; on the contrary, you are in the spirit, if only the Spirit of God dwells in you.

Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.

If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that dwells in you.

Consequently, brothers and sisters, we are not debtors to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
