Condemnation No More!

Jesus is no longer on the cross!  He rose again so that you will live with Him now and in the future, forever!  Jesus' work on the cross destroyed the power of the dark side over you and this post will continue to shed light on the Good News of the New Covenant.


An element of the New Covenant--no condemnation!  In the Bible, Romans 8:1 says, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."  If you have accepted Jesus' death & resurrection, God no longer condemns you. Condemnation no more! The price was paid and God no longer requires you to pay the price for your motives, actions, thoughts, etc...  This does not mean that you won't pay the consequences of past actions nor are you free to do evil and when you do, this evil will be forgiven. Quite the contrary.


If a sincere, true acceptance of what Jesus did for you has happened, you will shun or run away from intentionally doing evil. Your insides have changed and God has begun to transform you from the inside out. And He transforms you according to how He made you. So, if God doesn't condemn you who believe, then who does?


You condemn yourself and don't let yourself off the hook when you fail to measure up to your own, others, or your perceived expectations that God has of you. If God doesn't condemn you anymore, why are you being God and judging yourself?  


How freeing is the New Covenant when you emotionally recognize, understand, and live that "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."


This is indeed, Good News!
