"There is no Condemnation if You Belong to Christ"
“There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.” Romans 8: 1 NLT
Christians are not perfect. You’re going to fail at times. And most likely you (or others) will beat yourself up for those failures. But if you’re a follower of Jesus, you can be sure of this: the Lord never condemns you.
Too many people who believe in Jesus live in fear, bitterness and insecurity. They believe they are saved but you don’t know it by how they live. They’re too stressed out with the fear that God will condemn them for what they have done wrong.
The good news is God says He won’t condemn us. Jesus Christ took that judgment upon Himself on the cross. Jesus bore our sins for us, if we believe in Him. That’s Good News!
It can remove your shame, guilt and hurts. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or what others tell you, God can and has forgiven you in Jesus Christ.
Peace in the Lord,
