Morning Musing Over Coffee - Freedom From Condemnation

credit: Michelle Meiklejohn

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. ~ Romans 8: 1-4

This passage is so full of inspiration and promise. It is a gift beyond our comprehension to be free from the condemnation that was rightfully ours. The price that was paid by Him for this gift so freely given to us is more than we can even imagine. And yet he did it because of his incredible love for us. 

And not only did He freely give us this gift but He also made a way for us to live out the freedom it provides. His Spirit lives within all those who accept His gift, empowering us to walk confidently in this new found freedom for His glory.
