‘Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because
through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.’ (Romans 8:1-2)
Have you ever watched a movie about a criminal who has been sentenced to death? He
sits in court as witnesses come and condemn him for the horrible things he has done and
then the judge declares him guilty. We have all committed sins in our lives and deserve to
be punished like this criminal. But, Jesus took our punishment upon Himself so that we don’t
have to be condemned for our ‘crimes’.
Your sinful past can’t be held against you anymore – you are declared not guilty. You have also been given the Holy Spirit who gives you the power to live a Christian life. Praise God for His forgiveness today.
