This study emphasises Paul’s urgency in conveying
the radical newness of life since the advent of Christ and
his Spirit. Just as the Spirit introduces believers to the
life in Christ, he equally leads them to live life in the
faithfulness of Christ, producing the fruit of the Spirit.
Paul describes this as a life of freedom from flesh and its
secondi: law and the elements of the world.

Guiding believers ethically from inside and empowering them
to do God’s will, the Spirit has no need of law, making the
christologicalpneumatological ethic of the new creation
wholly anomistic.
