“There is therefore now no condemnation…” What a wonderful statement! How relaxing it is to be reminded of this. Our debt is paid, our lives redeemed. The cost has been met, the battle won. “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57) further still “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.” (1 John 5:4)
Now we can no longer be condemned for what has already been atoned for! No longer are we bound, no longer condemned. With the payment of the price, with the sentence served, God has decided to forget our sins and we are free!
