Life of Peace and Freedom

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2 NIV

When we choose to lovingly obey the LORD, He offers us justification and freedom. He fills in the gap with His atoning blood. We can never keep the law of God perfectly. The punishment or condemnation for sin is death. Jesus has taken our punishment, our condemnation on Himself, and gives us salvation. This does not mean that we no longer have to keep the law. It means that the law becomes part of our hearts. When we fail, He is there to pick us up by forgiving us. Jesus is the life-giving power through the Holy Spirit. He is the bread of life that we need daily. It is comforting to know that when we fail short of the glory of God, we can go to Jesus, and He forgives us. He gives us life without condemning us.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 NIV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
