Not Guilty

Romans, chapter 8, shows us some promises from God. Our verses today tell us that “anyone who is in Christ Jesus is not judged guilty” (verse 1). That is a wonderful promise!
God gave His law to the Jews. But that law could not destroy sin and save them. “So God used a human life to destroy sin” (verse 3b). That human life was God’s Son, Jesus. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we don’t have to live “following our sinful selves. We live following the Spirit” (verse 4b).
When we choose to follow and obey Jesus, God gives us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit shows us when we do something wrong and guides us back to God. If we allow the Holy Spirit to control us, we receive new life and peace.
Thank God today for His promises. Praise Him for the freedom, forgiveness and peace that you have through Jesus Christ!
