No Condemnation!

Romans 8 “Therefore there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” because you are/we are free from the law of sin and death and are alive in Christ. [Rom 8:1] They who accept the free gift of salvation can say with Paul; I am now righteous because of the sacrifice of Christ and am justified by faith.

Even though we were sinners, Christ died for us. [Rom 5:8] His life for ours freely given out of love. It is because of that truth; we can say, “I was crucified with Christ, yet am alive and live because of his faithfulness. Therefore it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live because of the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved us and gave himself for us.” (Gal 2:20 author’s paraphrase) We can know for certain that if we have died with him, we will reign with him. Not only is this true: no more condemnation awaits us, but also nothing can separate us from Him. We are eternally secure. We who have heard and accepted the gospel and the Holy Spirit are to proclaim Christ’s saving knowledge and His work of redemption. You, too, can know this truth: you are not condemned and you are eternally secure.

Many do not know this, so pray for open doors to speak of His lovingkindness to them.
