There is no eternal condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, saved by the blood of Christ on the cross. However, we can “feel condemned” in our lives if we choose to walk after the flesh and not walk after the Spirit. We consider the example of the woman caught in adultery and justly worthy of death. Instead of Jesus condemning the guilty sinner, Jesus says I do not condemn thee. Then, as an effect of the knowledge of our forgiveness by Christ, we need to go and live holy and righteous lives – go and sin no more.
Preached at Bethany PBC (Ecru, MS) on 10/31/2021.
