No Condemnation

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:1-2

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus…”  That is a glorious statement.  We can, as we walk with the Lord and follow Him, rest assured that there is “now no condemnation.”

The next verse tells us that “… the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”  There are two laws mentioned here – the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus and the law of sin and death.  We are going to live under one of those two laws.  No matter who we are or what we have, we are going to be subject to one of those two laws.  The law we are subject to depends entirely on what we do with the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is no condemnation to them “which are in Christ Jesus.”  The Christian is “in Christ Jesus.”  He is living under the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.  The unsaved man is living under the law of sin and death.  Jesus Christ freed us from the law of sin and death.  That law brings condemnation and death.  The law of the Spirit of life brings life and forgiveness.

As Christians, we should be thankful every day for our Saviour.  We should be thankful that we can live without condemnation.  We should be thankful that we have been made free from the law of sin and death.  Reading these passages and these verses should make us thankful every day of our lives!
