No Condemnation – June 10 2016

PrayerLife Tracy PhotoThe Bible doesn’t pull any punches.  In Romans 7, the Apostle Paul writes openly and honestly regarding the human struggle (and yes, the Christian struggle) to do what is right, yet consistently doing the very thing we know is wrong.  I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate” (Romans 7:15).  We’ve all been there … are there!  Paul answers this dilemma by revealing that “in Christ” there is no condemnation before a holy God.  Those who have trusted Jesus have been given His righteousness.  Christians live in the constant reality of being clothed in the righteousness of Jesus.  Its not that Christians don’t sin – we do!  Its that Christ’s righteousness completely fulfills God’s holy demands on our behalf even when we falter and fail.  That is amazing grace!
