Word for the day “We are not Condemned”

20 Nov

Romans 8:1(NKJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Some believers of God are plagued by feelings of condemnation. Either they think they will never live up to God’s expectations for them or they are nearly drowning in guilt over past sins. These men and women cannot seem to shake the sense that God is not about our performance or our about our efforts to the right thing. The Lord came to set us free from everything that would hinder our relationship with His Love!

The book of Romans confronts this lie head-on: “There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 8:1). When the Savior went to the cross on our behalf, He lifted the blame from our shoulders and made us righteous before God. Those feelings of condemnation do not belong to us; they are from Satan. He amplifies our guilt and feelings of inadequacy and then suggests that’s how the Lord feels about His “Detached children.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Our sins are wiped clean, and we are chosen and loved by God.

There is no condemnation for those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior. The believer’s penalty for sin is paid, and he can stand blameless before God. Trust in the Lord’s love and let go of Satan’s lie. God’s beloved children are covered by His grace and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Enjoy your day and know if you have received the Lord in your life you are on your way family of God!!!
