This is the last part of Romans 8:17
KLHRONOMOI MEN QEOU SUGKLHRONOMOI DE CRISTOU EIPER SUMPASCOMEN hINA KAI
What does EIPER mean here?
This does not reference your specific passage, but it is similar.
3) Assumed True for the Sake of Argument
The force of the indicative mood, when properly understood, lends itself to
the notion of presentation of reality. In the first class condition the
conditional particle turns such a presentation into a supposition. This does
not mean that the condition is true or means since! But it does mean that as
far as the portrayal is concerned, the point of the argument is based on the
assumption of reality.

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God
dwells in you.
