“There is therefore now no more condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit” – Romans 8:1
LIGHT FOR NOW: Once you arrive in Christ, you have escaped judgment
The word ‘ condemnation ‘ is a legal term used for passing verdict. The same word is also used for damnation. The word “condemnation” is actually a judgment and it is a sentence to serve the required punishment as written in the law. Once you arrive in Christ, you have escaped the white throne judgment. It is only your services to God here on earth that will be tried, and rewards given accordingly. Jesus went to Hell on our behalf in order to redeem is from it. He was judged, discharged and acquitted on our behalf. Romans 5:17-18 says “For if by one man’s offence, death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life”. Until you understand the word of God about salvation, you would not think in the direction of God. By Adam’s disobedience, sin came into the world and by the obedience of Christ; righteousness came to all that believe in Christ. It is the righteousness of Christ that frees men from sin and condemnation. Righteousness is a state of being right or being treated as someone who has never committed any sin. If that is how God sees us and relates with us, we must stop acting as criminals. He didn’t save us to leave us. Righteousness is not an act but a gift. It was not given to us because we stopped doing wrong things. Once you discover God’s system, your life will be right. The gospel brings the gift of no condemnation into our life. That is the good news. Hallelujah!
INSTRUCTION: Stay in the liberty that Christ has given you.
CONFESSION: Lord, I am free from any condemnation, in Jesus name.
