“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1 (ESV)
The believer in Christ’s grace is legally freed from the penalty of their sins – past, present, and future. There is absolute freedom in Jesus Christ, but His grace doesn’t motivate us toward greater sin, instead it inspires us toward a greater obedience to Calvary. Grace compels us ever closer in a daily walk with Him, not further from Him.
There is no condemnation for you as you seek to follow your Lord because He was tempted as man and is familiar with the battle you fight. Jesus Christ is full of compassion and endless grace for those who seek Him.
Let’s pray today in praise and gratitude for forgiveness and mercy that is ours in Jesus.
