There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:1 (KJV)
The purpose behind everything that Jesus has done for us is to deliver us from the detrimental effects of condemnation. Condemnation, which has its roots in the human heart when removed from fellowship with God, will spill over into every area of our lives if left unchecked. Yet as we abide in the Word of God and walk after the Spirit, we will see condemnation fading from our lives to the degree that we have a revelation of God’s infinite love and mercy towards us. When we understand that God is not condemning us, but that He is calling us to receive more fully into our hearts the gift of His precious Son, we are transformed from the inside out. Our conscience becomes clear, and we are equipped to walk in the world as the messengers and instruments of the very love that has saved us.
