Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
Story – Some children were gathering mushrooms and ate some that were poisonous. An antidote was given which, acting as “the law of life,” counterworks the poison, and sets the children “free from the law of death,” which had already commenced to work in their bodies. This is what Jesus has done for us. He counteracts everything that would bring us death.
When we got saved, we started moving in the direction of life. His “law of life” counteracted every death-dealing situation in our lives. Are you moving toward the fullness of life in Christ or are you still struggling with condemnation? Are you feeling the effects of the antidote or the effects of the poison of Satan? The devil wants you to think that his poison is still working, but this is a lie!
All believers will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be judged for our faithfulness. We will not be judged for our sins as all of our sins are covered under the blood of Jesus Christ. When we realize our position and walk in it, we find ourselves free from sin and experiencing the life that is in Christ. Satan will beat us up with guilt and shame, but we must realize that the blood of Jesus covers our lives and the condemnation of sin has been removed. This means that we are set free to be free.
Choose today to allow the Christ antidote work its fullness in your life. When we are “in Christ Jesus,” you do not have to do again what He has already done. You have to receive what He has done!!
