Does “No one” mean “No one”?
“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. 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.” – Romans 8:34
In so many people I talk with the one who condemns them is the devil dressed exactly like the one they see in the mirror.
This is where you need to understand True Grace and Not being under the law once you believe in Jesus for your righteousness!
Jesus justified you at the point of accepting Him! Jesus reconciled you at the point of accepting Him! Jesus purified you and made you a “new creation” At the moment you accepted Him!
If you doubt this look at the thief on the cross – was he baptized? Did he join a church? Was he ordained or did he speak in tongues? NO!
In case you missed the above paragraph the words justified, reconciled, purified and made you a new creation are ALL past tense!
Why is that?
Because once in Christ the purpose of the law has been fulfilled and you are no longer under it!!
So where is Christ now? If He is in your heart then He is also sitting beside the Father and interceding or mediating between God and you. What does that look like? It looks like Jesus talking with the Father about how forgiven you are! It looks like Jesus and the Father sharing how much they Love you!
This is important because Jesus is The One who died for you and if you believe Him you have died with Him AND been raised to a new life where the law is no longer your guide – LOVE IS!
The reason that many and perhaps most Christians are defeated is simply because they have one foot in Grace, one foot in law and their entire spirit is therefore in misery!
