There are those days I wake up super charged ready to face the day head on. Then there those days that my heart feels worn out thin, weary and heavy.
The devil reminds me of my failures and how “unfit” I am.
Do you understand such feelings? But then the Holy spirit quickly reminds me of His word.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
The Bible reminds us that there is NOW no condemnation for them that are in Jesus Christ. Every time you read that verse, know that there is a present and a future of tomorrow.
He forgave you your sins then reminds you that you don’t have to walk around with a heavy laden strapped around your back.
You don’t need to bend your shoulders, strained from the weight of past mistakes, sins and transgressions.
You don’t need to walk around carrying around the burden of un-forgiveness and bitterness because there is someone who already paid the ultimate price on the cross.
You do not walk around obsessed by your sins! The Bible says that we have been called live in freedom (Galatians 5:13).
Move on with His strength and might!
There is no condemnation in anything.
Celebrate His forgiveness and smile! Christ paid for it ALL!
So remind he devil that you are free and there is no condemnation in your life.
Forget what is behind and strain towards what is ahead.
God doesn’t accept us based on how “good” we act. Our performance is like filthy rags to him. He instead looks at us and sees the blood of Jesus on our foreheads and says – you are forgiven! How profound!
Whenever you feel condemned, look to the cross! The label says “IT IS FINISHED!”
