No Condemnation

I’ve been thinking a lot about condemnation – the guilt, not fear, that keeps people from stepping out. Guilt of past actions and inactions.  We sin too much or have not done as much for the kingdom as we think we should.

But God doesn’t look at it the way that we do.  There is no condemnation in Him. He looks at us and sees the precious blood of Christ.  He doesn’t see our sin.  He doesn’t see our inaction.

condemnationGod sees us blameless, righteous, and holy because of what Jesus did. Yes, we need to ask for forgiveness but our guilt of sin was removed on Calvary. There is no condemnation in Christ.

God doesn’t look on us and condemn us for what we have not done for Him. He looks at us with love, with patience, and kindness. He knew what our actions would be.  He is not surprised by our lack of follow-through. He can redeem the time if we just ask Him.  There  He keeps no record of wrong.  He is patient. is no condemnation in God because He is love.

Sometimes the guilt we feel is because we really are not right with God. If you’re not in unity with God, I John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness.” We have the ability to step out of the condemnation from the enemy and step into the love of God.   All we have to do is choose.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
