Simple Thoughts On Promises- 298

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1, 2)

Declared guilty on all accounts, but the judge of all the earth sacrifices his own son to set you free. How do you like that?

The Bible says,
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all - how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:29-32)

The world condemns believers who truly live for the Lord, because true believers do not conform to the ways of the world.

The Apostle Paul writes to the Corinthians,
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

Because you are washed, sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of God, there is now no condemnation for you. So rejoice, child of God.
