So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body, God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. (Romans 8:1–3).
In a world filled with people who feel they do not measure up even to their expectations for themselves, these words breathe life into our souls.
The fact that there is "no condemnation" for those who are in Christ does not mean it doesn't matter what we do . . . it means we can be free from the shame and feelings of inadequacy and realize we are welcomed into God's family, clean and forgiven! We are free to live in the fullness of what God created us to be.
Don't stop here! Read on . . . the way we have been set free from our sin is Christ died in our place, paying the penalty for our sin, so we could be forgiven and delivered from the wrath of God which we so justly deserved!
You have received an unfathomable gift. The more you ponder it, the more grateful you will be and the more enthusiastically you will use this freedom, forgiveness, and acceptance to live joyfully for the One who gave His life for you.
