In this passage, Paul contrasts the works of the flesh with the fruit of the Spirit. He warns that those who practice the works of the flesh, which stem from an unsubmissive depravity that rebels against the Lord, will not inherit the kingdom of God. He admonishes believers to instead live by the Spirit, crucifying the flesh with its passions and desires. In the life of the believer, this is the power to change.
