No Condemnation, But Freedom
Therefore, there is now NO Condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
- Therefore–in light of the gospel (ch1-7)
- Now–(not just “there will not be” – we are experiencing this already)
- No Condemnation
- No Longer in Adam, in Christ
Through Christ – we’ve been given the Spirit.
- We are free from the “law” of sin and death
- We live in the sphere of the “law” the Spirit of Life.
We are free because…
- God Sent His Son
- God Sent His Son in the likeness of sinful man
- God Sent His Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering
- …and in that sin offering condemned sin so there is no condemnation for us
- Christ met the righteous requirements of the Law
- …and we can now live according to the Spirit.
