Galatians 5:16-18:

[16]  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 

[17]  For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 

[18]  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Relating To Verse 16:

Galatians 3:22

But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Galatians 3:24

So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith

Romans 6:11-13

So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.  Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.

Luke 6:46

“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
