set free

The next identity in the series we can claim as a Christian is that of a set free child of God, which is also seen in the book of Romans, “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” (Romans 8:1–2 NIV).

It is so easy to fall victim to condemnation, from others, as well as, from ourselves. When condemnation comes against you,  let me encourage you to quote this Scripture as a word weapon. These two verses are so powerful because no matter what you have done or will do, there is no condemnation in Christ. The Holy Spirit will convict us when we have sinned, so that we can repent. Condemnation, on the other hand, comes from ourselves and Satan. Therefore we need to remind the Enemy and ourselves, that we do not walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Walking after the flesh is depending upon ourselves; walking after the Spirit is to depend upon God. When we fail, which we all will, from time to time; that does not mean we are failures. It simply means we do not do everything right. We all have to accept that we have weaknesses as well as strengths. Let Christ be strong in our weaknesses. Let Him be our strength on our weak days.
