Freedom From Condemnation (Romans 8: 1 – 2, ESV) by Carley Evans

on

“With my flesh,” says Paul, “I serve the law of sin.” (Romans 7: 25)

Yet, in the next moment, Paul writes to the Roman church: “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

The key to this freedom from condemnation is being in Christ Jesus. “For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do.” (Romans 8: 3)

Now we are set free from the law of sin and death. “The law of the Spirit has set [us] free.”

God, the Holy Spirit, sets us free from condemnation — for Jesus satisfies the wrath of God the Father. The Holy Spirit seals us for the day of judgment when Jesus will stand in the gap for us. The Father accepts His Son’s sacrifice, sparing us what He did not spare His Son.
