|No Condemnation To Them That Believe
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Do I believe saved by grace, yet, but the warning is clear through out scripture that one has to continue in faith and living a life style of a believer both inward at the heart and outside the heart. Jesus never came to condemn but to save us from our sins. To be testimony of the Word of God through faith in Him. Without the resurrection of both Christ and the dead from the grave, there would be no hope of redemption. If one looks at Matthew 27 you find the dead rose when Christ died, and then Christ rose the third day. Both God and man rose up to eternal victory. Without that hope we are all looking at a resurrected Lord as him being a God that only resurrected his own fleshly body, but the resurrection of the dead is proof of Christ raising more then just himself but the one’s in the grave as well.
Condemnation comes to those that have no faith in Christ Jesus. Condemnation comes to those that believe not the word fo God. Yet Christ came to demonstrate his love for mankind despite the sin, even tell the thief on the cross you be with me in paradise. Jesus came to save the world if man would only believe. Yet belief must be followed by faithful action because we love God and not because we feel it a requirement for society. Yet it is a requirement to be good to the point of the law. Yet to do good because of Christ is a testimony of faith in God, because often it requires one to go further then the law would go. Jesus came not to condemn but to gather you in to his way of life.
Dear Heavenly Father may your grace of the gift of your Son be sufficient in our life through belief, because you loved us. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
