Some Bible verses contain so much truth that can change our lives forever. Romans 8:1-2 are two of these verses.
“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.”
Romans 8:1-2 NLT
Two things jump out at me when I read…
1. No condemnation
There is no condemnation for those who belong to Jesus. If you have trusted Christ for your salvation, you below to Him. He is now your King and Ruler. And because you belong to Him, He has forgiven you of your sin. He does not condemn you.
2. We are free from the power of sin and death
Because we belong to Jesus we are free from the power of sin and death. This means that the Holy Spirit gives us new life. Our old life and the hold it has on us is broken. We are born again to a new life in Christ. And even though our bodies will eventually die, our spirits will live together with Christ forever.
So much truth. Life changing truth. Embrace it and live in the freedom of knowing that you are free from condemnation and the power of sin and death is broken in your life.
