17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.
And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
