For There is No Condemnation

I’m finding out later in life deeper meaning to scripture. We’re all told by someone that they’ve read a scripture many times in their life and then suddenly one day it jumps out and grabs their heart. Well?

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

There is therefore NOW no condemnation. How can one judge without a sentence of condemnation? If there is no condemnation, there is no judgment.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

  • For what the law of the old covenant could not allow for one to do was . . .

Walk after the Spirit. v4

Obtain life and peace. v6

Allow the Spirit of God can dwell in you. v9

Have righteousness within you. v10

Quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. v11

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

What brings us to the place Paul explains about above? No condemnation alludes to the fact that God loves us unconditionally. Look at all the things we have done. Not a pretty picture. Many children have been disappointments to their parents and we are no different in the state of humanity to God. But yet, He loves us still.

What did He do to fix the chasm between Him and us?

John 3:16 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

That giving was death of His Son. How many would do this? He did it to redeem us from our old nature of sin and death that cannot be righted by the Mosaic law as described in the Pentateuch.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

What was finished? That’s where I want to really go with this teaching. There will be more to follow so come back in the next few days when I will have had time to write more on what was finished.
