A Life With No Condemnation

Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

If we were all honest with ourselves we would agree that throughout each day we experience a little or a lot of condemnation.  We are constantly facing condemnation every day.  Condemnation comes from many different sources….

  • It comes from others
  • It comes from ourselves

Regardless of where it originates, we can all say we experience it.  However; it does not come from Jesus.  Those that are “in Christ” are no longer condemned.  There are three key principles that will remove condemnation:

  1. Be in Christ:  Simply put…you must be saved.
  2. Walk not after the flesh:  Following fleshly desires lead to condemnation.
  3. Walk after the Spirit:  Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

There are going to be moments where you will be pulled in two directions.  The one that resembles God…go with that one!

Today’s Challenge:  Don’t let the decisions of your past, the decision to follow fleshly desires, and the decisions to disobey the Lord put you in a position of condemnation.  Live in Christ and walk after the Spirit!
