That is precisely what Paul said in Romans 8:13 (which I quoted): 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.This is why I stated only the Holy Spirit can do what the scriptures ask of us through Faith in Christ and the Cross of Calvary where the victory was won.
So the Christian is not passive in this matter. He or she depends on the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit to crucify the flesh. And that can also happen when we focus on the positive aspect of walking in the Spirit.
