“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
King James Version (KJV)

In this context,the apostle Paul is giving us a solution in which we can live a pure life by not fulfilling the lustful desire of the flesh.Fleshly desires attack the flesh we give in to them when we are walking in the flesh because our mind is focused on what the flesh wants.But when we live in the spirit,we do what the spirit wants.The proverb states if you are in Rome do what the Romans do so when we walk in the spirit,the flesh loses its power over us.

The Apostle Paul is teaching us how to stand fast in the liberty, where with Christ Jesus has set us free. We must walk in the spirit, and then we will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. Those that are born again in Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh, with it's desires, and will not yield their members anymore to do those things. As we walk in the spirit, the fruits of the spirit will be produced in our lives: Love, joy, peace, patience, meekness, self control etc.
Against such there is no law. So don't be entangled in the yoke of bondage again, for who ever keeps the law is debtor to keep the whole law. We have liberty in Christ Jesus, only do not use your liberty as a cloak of bondage. The thief came to kill, still, and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life and that more abundantly. The whole law of God is completed in one word: Love thy neighbor as thyself. So walk in Love, and you will be set free. Jesus said a new commandment give I unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you.
