Devotional: No Condemnation
Christian Devotion about being free from condemnation
"...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. For the law of the
Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our
new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death..." - Romans 8:1-2 (AMPC)
In Christ Jesus there is no condemnation. We do not have
to live with a sense of condemnation. Jesus has freed us
from that. The 'law of the spirit' has freed us from the
'law of sin and death'.
Yes, we should be walking after the dictates of the spirit.
This is what our heart's desire should be, to live according
to the spirit. But if we should fail at any time, and fall
short, we don't need to take on a heavy burden of guilt and
condemnation. That's not to say we don't feel genuinely sorry
for what we have done, but we shouldn't continually beat ourselves up over it – even years down the track. We need to give
it over to Jesus – so He can cleanse us and restore us. If God
can forgive us and love us, even though we slip up, we should
let it go and move on. God does not want us to go through life
with a heavy burden of guilt and condemnation over us.
Don't let condemnation rule over your life,
Let it go, you've been freed in Christ
