At the jail on Sunday, one of the brothers said he was to stand before the judge today. I’ve haven’t talked with him yet. He told us yesterday he’s up for 15 years.
He said his family and friends had forsaken him. He said, “I just keep condeming myself,” tears rolling down his face.
One of the greatest lines from the Apostle Paul’s pen, one that is so hard for many, if not most, believers to receive, has to be from Romans 8:1 … There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
No condemnation? None? That’s what it says.
So, friends, who condemns you the most? Yourself? The evil one?
It certainly isn’t Jesus. Not according to Romans 8:34 …
“Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”
The one person who could rightfully condemn us … Christ Jesus … is praying for us. So let’s quit condemning ourselves. Our Savior isn’t!
