"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh." (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
"But I say, walk (peripateo: go, walk about, be occupied) by the Spirit, and you will not carry out (teleo: finish, fulfill, accomplish, pay, perform, execute, complete) the desire (epithumia: lust, craving, longing - for what is forbidden) of the flesh (sarx: carnally minded, the body; natural or physical origin)."
I say to you, go forth and be occupied by the Spirit and you will not fulfill the longings and cravings of your natural man.
