Thoughts From Romans 8:21

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. [2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:1-2 NKJV

We are told that we are forgiven for our sins. But sometimes we don’t really “feel” forgiven. We still carry some of that old guilt around.

As believers, we don’t have to do this. We don’t have to be slaves to our guilt, to our condemnation, because Jesus has set us free from all that. He has given us new life. Jesus took the penalties of our sins on Himself when He gave His life on the cross. If we allow ourselves to be consumed by sins that God has forgiven us for, we are essentially saying that Jesus’ sacrifice wasn’t big enough to cover our sins, and we know that this just isn’t true.

Folks, if you hear a voice reminding you of the sins for which you’ve already been forgiven, know that this is not the voice of God. Your guilt is valuable to the enemy. But he can’t do much if you are free. And you are free, free from the law of sin and death. Jesus Christ set you free two thousand years ago at Calvary.
