Romans 8:1-11

"I'm slacking. I’ve sinned yet again. I’ve not spent enough time with You. Oh no, Lord. What am I doing? It feels as though I’m drawing away further from You each day. It is to the extent that I haven’t even been speaking to You. What a screwed up relationship I must have had with You! I’m sorry, Lord. I feel so condemned."

How often have we felt this way? It is something many of us are familiar to. Over and over again, we feel as though our lives have been of no good. Everyday passes by with us sinning against God. That’s when condemnation hovers upon us. We live life filled with disappointment. Hurt. Frustration. Regrets.

But God does not want that for us! In Romans 8:1-11, as long as we are in Christ Jesus, we will not be considered secondary, nor will we be written off. This is because through the relationship we have with Jesus, the Spirit of God sets us free from the law of sin and death. Whatever mess we got ourselves into that could not be settled, God straightens them all! How is this possible? He sent Jesus to earth, in the form of man, to be a sin offering. That is how much God loves us. Thus, we should not feel condemned or unworthy of God’s love, for He is willing to send His only begotten Son to die for our sins.

As John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Therefore, if the Holy Spirit that brought Jesus back alive is living inside us, then we will surely be brought back to life too! As long as we believe in Him, and we are His children, and the Spirit of God lives in us - we belong to none other but Him! Let us not be disheartened, but rejoice in the Lord our God for He loves us dearly and will never give up on us!

Find a song that has “No condemnation” in it and Sing!
