Romans 8: 12- 17

8:12 Therefore, brothers, we are not debtors to the flesh, so as to live according to the flesh.
8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die. But if, by the Spirit, you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.
8:14 For all those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.
8:15 And you have not received, again, a spirit of servitude in fear, but you have received the Spirit of the adoption of sons, in whom we cry out: “Abba, Father!”
8:16 For the Spirit himself renders testimony to our spirit that we are the sons of God.
8:17 But if we are sons, then we are also heirs: certainly heirs of God, but also co-heirs with Christ, yet in such a way that, if we suffer with him, we shall also be glorified with him.

Luke 13: 10- 17

13:10 Now he was teaching in their synagogue on the Sabbaths.
13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years. And she was bent over; and she was unable to look upwards at all.
13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to himself, and he said to her, “Woman, you are released from your infirmity.”
13:13 And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she was straightened, and she glorified God.
13:14 Then, as a result, the ruler of the synagogue became angry that Jesus had cured on the Sabbath, and he said to the crowd: “There are six days on which you ought to work. Therefore, come and be cured on those, and not on the day of the Sabbath.”
13:15 Then the Lord said to him in response: “You hypocrites! Does not each one of you, on the Sabbath, release his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it to water?
13:16 So then, should not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound for lo these eighteen years, be released from this restraint on the day of the Sabbath?”
13:17 And as he was saying these things, all his adversaries were ashamed. And all the people rejoiced in everything that was being done gloriously by him.
