Memorizing wonderfully 68: Galatians 5:23: Against certain things there is no law


22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is NO LAW !


To remember

“18 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, {1 } parties, {1) Gr heresies }21 envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of which I {1 } forewarn you, even as I did {1 } forewarn you, that they who practise such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. {1) Or tell you plainly }22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 meekness, self-control; against such there is no law.” (Ga 5:18-23 ASV)

Ga 2:19 For I through the law died unto the law, that I might live unto God.

1Ti 1:9 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and unruly, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for {1 } murderers of fathers and {1 } murderers of mothers, for manslayers, {1) Or smiters }

Ro 2:29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Ro 6:4 We were buried therefore with him through baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.

Ro 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace.

Ro 6:18 and being made free from sin, ye became {1 } servants of righteousness. {1) Gr bondservents }

Ro 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ; that ye should be joined to another, even to him who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit unto God.

Ro 7:6 But now we have been discharged from the law, having died to that wherein we were held; so that we serve in newness of the spirit, and not in oldness of the letter.

Ro 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

Ro 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

1Co 15:45 So also it is written, {1 } The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. {1) Ge 2:7 }

Ro 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.

Ro 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies {1 } through his Spirit that dwelleth in you. {1) Many ancient authorities read because of }

Joh 8:32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Joh 8:36 If therefore the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
