Living by Holy Spirit

[8:1] There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
[2] For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 
[3] 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, [4] 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. 
[5] 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. [6] For to set the mind on the flesh is death,
but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. [7] For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, 
for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. [8] Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
[9] You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does 
not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. [10] But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because 
of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. [11] If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in 
you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

(Romans 8:1-11 ESV)

If we live by the Holy Spirit your life will be filled with joy and peace.  When Jesus died on the cross for us we were not 
condemned. When we died with Christ when he was on cross we died to the law.  He applied his righteousness to us. We filled 
the law just like Christ did by action of Holy Spirit. Living by the Spirit gives us life and peace.  The Spirit indwells 
in us but if we live by the flesh we are miserable in our sins, trying to keep the law.  We cannot keep the law; we are too weak.  
Set your minds and our actions on the Holy Spirit and repent and forgive each other; practice love in everyone and you will be 
living by the Holy Spirit.
