Memory Monday – Week 93

How would you feel if you had committed a very serious crime and were put on death row? But instead of the judge giving you a guilty sentence, he said you were ”not guilty”.  Romans 8:1 says, “Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

For those who are followers of Jesus, you can relate to receiving this not-guilty plea. Because of Jesus we have been offered a not-guilty sentence and have been given freedom and life. No one who is a follower of Him will be condemned. It’s not that there is little condemnation, but there is NO condemnation for those who are in Him.

Many of us spend a majority of life feeling guilty for something. Whether it’s little or big, happened yesterday or 10 years ago, guilt is not what Jesus paid for. He paid for us to be forgiven and free from any negative and guilty feelings. The opposite viewpoint of this verse tells us that if we are not in Christ, then you will receive condemnation. Jesus wants to have a relationship with you. Don’t miss out on what He has in store for your life, especially the joy of being without any condemnation.

Refuse any guilty conviction the enemy has given you. Whenever you feel guilt sneak in, reflect on who your identity is in Christ. Live life to the fullest and enjoy the freedom Jesus paid for.

    Amen! I feel like our culture is pretty big on placing the guilt trip continuously on people so it’s such a refresher knowing that we are “not guilty” because of what Christ has done for us 🙂

    OH mercy… this is the hardest thing for me. I know God has forgiven me about things in the past but the regret & guilt is so heavy sometimes. I know the devil uses that against me &I have to stop & remind myself of Grace & mercy & all the amazing things God has done for a sinful me.

    Ahh, yes… one of my most treasured scriptures because I am the queen of heaping guilt onto myself.

    Thank you for this lovely reminder.

    Wishing you a wonderful evening.

    Amen. May I add that for those of us going through infertility, we might often question if it’s a punishment from God for our past sins. This verse is such a crucial one for those of us who struggle with those thoughts. Infertility is not a punishment. We are forgiven and clean.
