“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.” – Romans 8:1-2; CSB
What a statement, Lord! What a proclamation!
Do you hear that, saints? There is no condemnation!
None! It’s gone!
What a truth! What a glorious, amazing, miraculous, impossible truth!
And yet, God has made it possible. God has worked the miracle!
What does this mean?
This amazing truth means that we do not have to work be set free. It means that all of our religious obligations and good deeds in order to make it into heaven are useless!
This is not to say that we shouldn’t fulfill our religious obligations or do good deeds. God forbid!
However, we do not have to earn our salvation! God has made our salvation possible!
The cross of Christ has set us free! We do not have to wonder any longer if we are going to make it into heaven!
If we trust in Jesus, if we come to the cross, we do not need to atone for anything. We simply need to come to the cross and trust in His love and forgiveness.
Live in this truth, saints!
Here the Lord calling to you! Live as if you are not condemned for your sins…because you aren’t.
