No More Condemnation!
Romans 8:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,"
If you’re like me, at some point in your life you’ve felt condemned for the things you’ve done in your past. But you know what, condemnation is a huge hindrance to our walk with God. Shame, guilt, and self-worth are associated with condemnation, and they will stop us from experiencing all that God has for us. Many Christians are plagued by feelings of condemnation. They either think that they can never measure up to God’s expectations, or they are overwhelmed in guilt by their past sins.
Knowing who you are in Christ is extremely important in our walk with Jesus. We must train ourselves and renew our minds daily in His word and see ourselves free from condemnation. When you gave your heart to Jesus, He took away your old nature and gave you a new one. So, you are no longer the same person as you were before, the old has passed and now your brand new in Him. It doesn't matter what your past looked like, if you asked Go to forgive you than that's all that matters. With true repentance, there is now NO CONDEMNATION in Christ Jesus. And although we deserve condemnation, Jesus bore our condemnation, removed our guilt, traded His righteousness for our sins and we now stand clean and just in Him. Jesus received condemnation when He deserved none that is how much He loves us.
Sin is deceitful and it will try to trap you in your past, but I’m here to tell you that God is not angry with you. No matter what you have done, you are forgiven and you do not have to live in condemnation any longer. You can be free today, and God wants you free!
