There is now therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
We do not stand condemned because we are in Christ Jesus, and not only that but also because we do not live after the flesh: we do not live and act according to the dictates of the flesh. The law of sin and death made the flesh weak in that it brought about sin-consciousness. Consciousness of sin leads to sin and that is what the law if sin and death did: it held us under bondage in sin but the law of the Spirit of life brought about in our minds, a consciousness of righteousness and freed us from the power of sin and its captivity.
Therefore, we no longer stand condemned for sin no longer holds its sway on us. Romans 6:14 says, ‘for sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.’ In Galatians 4:4, Christ who was made subject to the law redeemed us from the demands of the law and now the Spirit of life has taken over.
Brethren, let us hold on to this freedem we have obtained of the Lord: freedem that has instilled in us the boldness to enter into the holy of holiest, where we find grace to help in our times of need.
