No condemnation now or ever
Rom 8: 1-8
Only God can free us from the condemnation we deserve
Published December 21st, 2018
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 1
For the law of h the Spirit of life i has set you 1 free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
For j God has done what the law, k weakened by the flesh, l could not do.
m By sending his own Son n in the likeness of sinful flesh
and o for sin, 1
he condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that p the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us,
q who walk not according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.
For r those who live according to the flesh set their minds on s the things of the flesh,
but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on t the things of the Spirit.
For to set u the mind on the flesh
but to set the mind on the Spirit
is life and peace.
For the mind that is set on the flesh is v hostile to God,
for it does not submit to God’s law;
w indeed, it cannot.
Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

God has done what the law could not. We are now free from condemnation and can experience life and peace by the Spirit of God. This has been achieved by Christs sacrifice for sin and his fulfilment of all righteousness which is now made complete in us.
