Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Condemnation is not an emotion. It is a state of being. Condemnation has to do with punishment. We are born in Condemnation. All have sinned and fallen short… Praise God He has made a way to leave condemnation behind…through our faith in the Cross!
t doesn’t mean we will not have sorrow about our sin. We will have conviction about our sin. Which will led to repentance. If you sin and do not have an conviction you are in trouble. Conviction is an emotion. Sorrow is not to stay. You do not beat yourself up, you receive what Jesus did for you, repent and go on.
2 Corinthians 7:9-10 Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.
Praise God as we are in Christ we are justified and now we have no condemnation!!! We have peace with God!
Not based on our performance!
Praise God Jesus paid the price!
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Sometimes other Christians will not allow you to receive the forgiveness. They look at what you did, no matter how long ago it was, they condemn you. No sin is not right, but praise God we are washed in the blood!
We are even guilting of bringing up our own past. We dwell on who we were and what we have done. Even yesterday weighs us down. Let us set a side all that pulls us down. We are not to put condemnation on ourselves. We are to walk in Christ, not walk in our past. Oh Father help us to see you sent your Son so we could be free. Set your children free today!!
Let the conviction come. Then let it be turned into Joy.
Lamentations 3:22-23 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Arise from condemnation today and go to the Cross! Be Justified, in Jesus Name.
