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.
To know the true impact of this verse you have to go back to verses in Chapter 7. Those are the familiar lines of Paul saying, “for what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do…”. (vs.15) and “when I want to do good, evil is right there with me” (vs. 21).
Not only is evil right there with us, but quick to condemn us regarding our sin. The enemy seems to be relentless in condemning us, yet God doesn’t look at us in that way.
Let’s pray for freedom from condemnation for our prodigal. Because of poor choices in their lives the enemy has lots of ammunition. Christ died for their freedom and He certainly doesn’t condemn them. What a liberating thought that is!
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for _______ who is in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set _______ free from the law of sin and death.
