NO CONDEMNATION PART I
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1
Condemnation connotes strong disapproval, accusation, censure, or damnation. There is no damnation for those that are in Christ Jesus. Not those that are in Church, or those that claim membership of a religious organization or those that have Christian name but those that are in Christ Jesus. But who are those in Christ Jesus;
- Those who walk not after the flesh;
- Those who walk after the Spirit.
Walking after the flesh expels us from being in Christ. At the moment we begin to manifest the ‘flesh’, we are driven out of Christ Jesus.
Salvation is more than what many people think it is!
Adam was driven out of Eden. Genesis 3:24. Lucifer was cast out of heaven to the Earth and he became satan the devil. Revelation 12:9
We can only escape condemnation being in Christ Jesus by walking not after the flesh but after the Spirit. Even after healing the man that was bedfast for 38 years by the pool of Bethesda, Jesus warned the healed man that he stood the chance of being condemned by a worse thing if he touched sin again. John 5:14. We will always escape condemnation if we avoid sin.
Scriptures for meditation: Genesis 3:23-24; Revelation 12:7-9
Jesus is Lord!
