June 4th, 2018 || Scripture of the Day
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit .
Life is a struggle between right and wrong, light and darkness, and sin and righteousness. Sin leads to physical and spiritual death. As believers, we struggle with all these choices. And our helplessness against the power of sin, leaves us with a feeling of emptiness and condemnation. God does not want us to live in condemnation, so He sent Jesus to take all our sins with its attendant feelings of condemnation upon Himself. We have been set free from sin and released to the newness of life through the Spirit of God.
Do not allow anything from your past to condemn you, God never condemns us with our past. Rather, He releases us into a righteous life in Christ. Feelings of condemnation only return when we get entangle in sin. Don’t trade your freedom, for condemnation by dabbling in sin. Purpose to be righteous, you have been set free by Jesus. No more condemnation. Live in freedom by living righteously.
Prayer: Father, I thank you for setting me free from the bondage of sin and condemnation. Help me to live in righteousness through the power of your Holy Spirit. I ask all this in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
