I was listening to some amazing teaching last night and heard a really interesting statement.
The teacher said that God cannot condemn us, the devil cannot condemn us and we even cannot condemn ourselves.
There is only one-way to receive condemnation, and that is to put ourselves under law!
If we are not under law there is nothing anyone can say or do so that can make us feel condemned.
If we feel condemnation we have, in one way or another, put ourselves back under law.
As born again believers living under the New Covenant we are now under grace, and not under law (Romans 6 v 14).
This can be a truth that can set us free if we truly realise its implications.
If we feel condemned we should attempt to find out what part of our lives is under law; what are we striving for and trying to achieve through our own strength.
We can then change this situation, remind ourselves that we are under grace and free ourselves from condemnation and guilt.
We can rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ, putting ourselves back under grace.
Under grace there is no condemnation, EVER!
When we trust in Jesus and His finished work (that is live under grace) we are not relying upon our own efforts and strengths so there can never be any condemnation.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you that I live under grace”.
Romans 6 v 14…..For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace
