He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the
name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:18
READ: Romans 8:31-39
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who
can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God
that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather,
that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also
maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation,
or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or
sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we
are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through
him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor
principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to
separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our
Lord.
MESSAGE
Whenever I ruminate over the many-sided blessings embedded in
the Good News that came through our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ, my heart is filled with great joy. I equally find it fascinating
that no elaborate process involving complexities is required for us
to access these blessings. Jesus did the hard work and made
things simple for us. One of such blessings is freedom from
condemnation. The righteous judgment of God against sin has
brought all of mankind under condemnation. This is the reason
why no man can escape the pain of guilt that results from sin, or
the consequences that follow it. Romans 3:23 says,
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,”
Romans 6:23 further says,
“For the wages of sin is death,”
However, the Good News is that Jesus Christ gives us freedom
from the condemnation that had put a seal on the destiny of all
mankind. In Romans 8:1, this Good News says,
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in
Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Those who are in Christ Jesus can now live a life free from guilt of
sin or the feeling of inadequacy resulting from past misdeeds.
Their conscience is liberated from condemnation because they
know their sins have been washed away by the precious blood of
Jesus (Revelation 1:5). What does it take to access this blessings
of freedom? Only Believe! Believe in the Person of the Lord Jesus
Christ, believe He is who He says He is, and believe in the work of
salvation He has completed. How do you know you truly believe all
these? When your actions and confessions reflect what you claim
to believe, that is when you truly believe.
Another blessing of the Good News that you can have access to by
faith is the truth that Jesus Christ, though rich, became poor, so
that through His poverty, you might be rich (2 Corinthians 8:9).
Your faith in this article of the Good News will prevent you from
doing diabolical or criminal things to get rich, because you know
that your prosperity lies in the sacrificial life that the Master has
lived. Believing in the words and works of Jesus gives us
contentment, the absence of which brings many sorrows to those
who want to be rich by any means (1 Timothy 6:6-10). Beloved, do
you believe all these? If you do, live your life by the ideas of the
Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will forever be free
from condemnation, now and in eternity.
