John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.
I used this approach in my answer to Translation of the word διακρίνων in 1 Corinthians 11:29
The important point is not the flesh but the spirit. Let your understanding and interpretation enter your mind and more importantly enter your spirit, which produces life or behavior change to not sin. It is your spirit that empowers you to overcome sins through the indwelling Holy Spirit. This is a spiritual reality. This is not some vague mystical approach to spiritualize but a concrete and precise approach to discern the facts in the spiritual realm, i.e., spiritual realities.
John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.
2 Corinthians 3:6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
1 Corinthians 2:14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
John 3:12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?
