Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
It's easy to read verse 12 and say, "Now I don't need to live after the flesh" then by the flesh try to accomplish it. The key is in verse 13: we must conquer the flesh through the Spirit.
