Condemnation is for Others

There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus… Romans 8:1

Jesus said, “Abide in Me and I in you as I am the vine and you are the branches… John 15:1-5

As we choose to live within Him we find the true life that Almighty God intended for us to live.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death…Romans 8:2

The do’s and don’ts of religion are counter-productive toward the rich life that God designed for us.

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. Romans 8:2&3

The rules were never intended for the purpose of giving life.

He (God) made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him! II Corinthinans 5:21

He made Jesus to BE sin on our behalf so that we could become righteous IN Him!

You see, your sin, (all of it; yesterday’s, today’s and all of tomorrow’s) were nailed to the cross. As the first nail was hammered into the hand of Jesus, your sin cried out in agony. As the second nail was hammered mercilessly into the other hand of Jesus, your sin screamed in terror! As the final nail was hammered into the feet of Jesus, your sin died!

With sin being dead, the stage has been set for each of us to become righteous in Jesus!

Living IN Jesus is open to each of us who have, by faith, accepted His payment!

We cannot live in both worlds. We cannot live in love with mammon and hope to love God and find the life of abundance that He has provided!
