Romans 8:1-6 (1)

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

Romans 8 has got to be labeled the Freedom Chapter. His joyful shout at the end of Chapter 7 is laid out in detail in 8 beginning with the summary in the first two sentences. No condemnation because the Spirit has set me free. God sees me through the blood of His Son; my debts are fully and completely paid. The necessary and sufficient conditions met.
