"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, *who do not walk according to the*[Who do not walk (live) according to works of righteousness done in or according to the flesh but walk (live) by the righteousness of faith in Christ (Rom. 1:17b), i.e. according to the Spirit]

He for them paid their ransom by his death. He for them fulfilled the law in his life. So that now in him and by him every true Christian man may be called a fulfiller of the law. Forasmuch as that which their infirmity lacked, Christ’s righteousness hath supplied.Of the Salvation of Mankind by Only Christ Our Saviour from Sin and Death Everlasting
