CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
In the Spirit (πνεύματι)
Bring to fulfillment in action. See on do the law, Galatians 5:3.
The lust (ἐπιθυμίαν)
Frequent in Paul, and usually in a bad sense; but see Philippians 1:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:17, and comp. Luke 22:15. The phrase lust or lusts of the flesh occurs also Ephesians 2:3; 2 Peter 2:18; 1 John 2:16. It means, not the mere sensual desire of the physical nature, but the desire which is peculiar to human nature without the divine Spirit.

Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
