Believers Are Not Condemned
Believers are not condemned
If you are a born again Christian, then you don’t have to feel self condemned. You have to believe what the bible says, that once God saves you from your sins, you are sealed until the day of redemption.
You don’t have to feel guilty about what you have done in the past, because the bible tells us in Isaiah 1:18, “come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” So many Christians are still feeling guilty about their past, when the word of God plainly says in I John 1:9, “if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” This guilt that you are feeling, is a tool that the devil is using against you, he always want to bring your past up to you, but you that are born again know that the devil is a liar and the author of it. The devil can’t condemn a child of God. Paul lets you know in Romans 8:1 “there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
The devil was a liar from the beginning of time, way back in the Garden of Eden, but you as a believer, must trust God’s word for what it says. You must be on guard at all times against the devil, who is the evil one, because he is slick, cunning, and a deceiver. If you give the devil an inch, I guarantee you that he’s going to take a mile. Be thankful, that God gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ, to die for your sins, and because Christ bore your sins, you are not numbered with the condemned.
