Who will be saved

Romans 8:3-4  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Note:

Another look at the verse has revealed those who will be saved, showing that God has not cast aside the law, but rather through Christ fulfill them. This then calls for attention, because although one may confess Christ as his savior, he can in many ways walk contrary to the law satisfying the nature of the flesh. According to the law, Christ has empowered us to walk not after the lusts of the flesh, but rather after the new nature of the spirit. This leaves us with the understanding that although the law has no power to save, it is a requirement of us to obey the law through Christ. “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit“. So who may be saved? Those “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.

Ro 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do
mind the things of the flesh; but
they that are after the Spirit
the things of the
Spirit.
