Fully Persuaded

Read the Bible believing it is the place where God speaks to you,  perfectly and comprehensively. Be fully persuaded by the written word of God.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16

Am I Condemned For My Sin? Scripture says to those who believe in Jesus, we were resurrected from being ‘dead in sin.’ and now we are made new, alive in Christ.  ❤️ “There is therefore now no condemnation”: to those who are in Christ Jesus. Since God the Father does not condemn Jesus, neither can the Father condemn those who are in Jesus. Evil attempts to condemn us, but we overcome evil with good. When the liar reminds us of our past, we speak the word of God and he flees. God does not condemn us, He redeemed us. Be persuaded by the Spirit.

Paul’s “therefore” NOW is important.  IF we are NOW one with Jesus and He is our head, our Leader, our Teacher,  we cannot be condemned. We are FREE indeed from all criminal charges. Jesus the Judge of all gave us His verdict of NOT guilty. “we are acquitted on all charges of past sin”  A person cannot be acquitted or freed and then tried and condemned for the same sins.

John 3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again…no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

Joined as one with Jesus, we hear God’s verdict. There is therefore “no condemnation In Christ”: “This truth imports a spiritual union between Christ and believers.  Christ in me His hope for glory.  Christ is in me made possible by the Holy Spirit, and we believe by faith which is a gift.
