Free From Condemnation
Free From Condemnation 

By Wayne McDonald


Romans 8:1, “Therefore [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus. Who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.
 
If you have received Jesus as your Lord, God has given to you His righteousness. Righteousness is your right to come into God’s presence without any consciousness of shame or guilt - just as if you never sinned. There is nothing that you can do to earn it; you just receive it by faith. Condemnation is a sentence of satan that says, “Because of what you have done this is the prison that you must stay in.”
 
I have good news for you today! You are not under condemnation any longer. You are not dammed to commit the same act over and over again because you feel guilty and like a failure. If you have fallen into sin simply repent and confess that sin to the Lord and move on. 1John 1:9 tells us once you confess your
sin God is faithful to forgive you and to cleanse you. He forgives you, now you must forgive yourself and move on. Remember our scripture verse of the day
 
(Romans 8:1), “Therefore [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus. Who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.” Refuse condemnation today. Instead, receive God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness. Look back NO longer, because
 
your best days are straight ahead!
