We move and breathe and have our life in the Spirit. We must decide to accept that which is ours, and live according to the Spirit of Christ that dwells in us. We must shed off the old man/woman, and become reborn!
11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature], to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh.
