“There is Therefore Now NO CONDEMNATION”

You may not realize it but the whole of your life, now that you are a born again believer, assuming that indeed you are, is wrapped up in the focus of glorifying the God who saved us from sin and death. It is an egregious contradiction in terms when professing believers either have no desire for spiritual victory over their sin or are ignorant they have already been granted it through the gift of grace in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The reality of freedom and liberty in Christ should be a stunning realization, to the believer, of the wonder of Christ and of Christianity. The reality of our freedom in Christ is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. The reason for our freedom in Christ is our justification. The route to our freedom in Christ is His substitutionary life, death, burial and resurrection. The result of our freedom in Christ is the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. The nature of our freedom in Christ is a lifestyle of ongoing victory over our sin and the ultimate glory of God being manifest in our lives. Romans 8:1-11 may be the most powerful section in the entirety of Scripture! Please take this one home with you as you Listen for LIFE!
