Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
The words we find in this verse are nothing short of beautiful. Through Christ Jesus, our sin is removed and our guilt is vanquished. Those who receive the gift of salvation are in Christ Jesus. As a result of this, we are no longer condemned.
In John 3, Jesus relates to us the following statement: For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:17-18) The message is simple and clear. Those who believe in Christ are not condemned and are free from condemnation forever. Those who do not believe, are judged as guilty in God’s court already. There are those who are free and those who are condemned.
Dear reader, in which group do you fall? Are you a believer in Christ or are you guilty before God? If you are not Christian, realize that God will judge you as guilty. And realize that He has every right to judge us. Turn from your sin and believe in Jesus. He died for you and was raised to life again just as He said. Believe in Him and trust in Him by faith today. Call upon Him and ask to save you and forgive you. You will never regret trusting in Jesus.
