Are You Free From Condemnation?

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.- Romans 8:1 NKJV

No condemnation. None. Jesus took on our guilty sentence and paid the punishment for our sins. When the Spirit of God convicts us of yesterday’s errors, He does it with love and healing. He leads us to repent and move forward. When satan condemns us, he brings shame and condemnation, to hinder our progress, walk unforgiven, and bring regrets.

Regrets brings despair, sorrow, and hopelessness. We battle thoughts of defeat: if only I had not done that; if only I had handled that better; if only I had not missed that opportunity, if only … When we dwell on our pasts, we get stuck in places we no longer occupy. Recalling God’s faithfulness brings encouragement and empowerment. Receiving His forgiveness and forgiving ourselves produces freedom.

As a new creation in Christ Jesus, we walk free from condemnation. Our story of redemption replaces our history of regrets. By God’s grace, we make the most out of today. By His mercy, His blood covers new mistakes. When we stay present in our tasks and relationships, we find peace and rest. It might take time, but God carries us through the process with care and patience, from glory to glory!
