The Daily Breath of God

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Romans 8:1,2 NLTOne of the by-products of the nature of sin is condemnation and nothing about this has ever brought renewal to our emotions, thinking or our relationships. This natural habit of condemnation has its own by-products, such as irritations, anxiety, anger, peer presure, unforgiveness and even cursing. It is right here in this place where grace came in. Grace free's us from condemnation because we are united now with Jesus the Christ, who is God's love given without condemnation. In his grace there is freedom from the power of condemnation so that we may begin to enjoy the by-products of his love, such as joy, peace with ourselves and our relationships, patience instead of irritations, kindness instead of anger, faithfulness instead of anxiety, forgiveness instead of unforgiveness and self-control instead of peer pressure. On this new day go and explore the freedom of his grace in you without condemnation. Rejoicing is natural in the freedom of grace. Enjoy!
