VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

ROMANS 8:1

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

 

PAUL IS TEACHING HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS/YESHUA THAT IF THEY BELONG TO “HIM” THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION  – AT LEAST, AND ESPECIALLY, IF THERE ARE NO OPEN DOORS TO THE ENEMY.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

IT MEANS THAT ONCE WE HAVE TRULY MADE A COMMITMENT TO THE LORD AND WE ARE HIS, THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION AS IT PERTAINS TO A LOSS OF SALVATION.

HOWEVER, IF ONE CALLS ONESELF A BELIEVER, A FOLLOWER OF JESUS/YESHUA, AND WALKS ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, INSTEAD OF IN THE SPIRIT, WHICH HAS BEEN SO GENEROUSLY GIVEN, THE ENEMY CAN CERTAINLY CALL ONE INTO CONDEMNATION ON THOSE SPECIFIC BEHAVIOURS OR ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE NOT SURRENDERED TO THE LORD, FAILING TO FOLLOW GOD’S WAYS, & ARE DISHONOURING TO HIM.

ALTHOUGH THERE WILL NOT BE A PERMANENT STATE OF CONDEMNATION, THERE WILL BE AN INTERIM MEASURE OF JUDGMENT, IN THE FORM DISCIPLINE, OR OF ENEMY ATTACK BECAUSE OF LOSING GOD’S PROTECTIVE COVERING UNTIL THERE IS REPENTANCE AND A CHANGE IN BEHAVIOUR. THAT IS A FORM OF TEMPORARY, SITUATIONAL CONDEMNATION/JUDGMENT THAT WILL OCCUR WHEN BELIEVERS WALK ACCORDING TO THEIR FLESHLY DESIRES, INSTEAD OF NAILING THEM TO THE CROSS, & WALKING IN THE SPIRIT, CHOOSING VICTORY OVER THEM.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE FOR ALL BELIEVERS TO ATTEND TO.
