The Light Daily Devotional – Free from Condemnation
Focus: Free from Condemnation
WORD FOR TODAY
Each time a man comes to the acknowledgement of his sins and repent from them; he has succeeded in overcoming any form of condemnation. The only antidote against the grip of sin is total repentance through Christ Jesus!
“When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”” (John 8:10-11 NKJV).
Irrespective of how you have lived so far in life, the Lord is not willing to condemn you if you will make yourself available to do His will. He is not interested in your past but your future.
It is not the sin that you have sinned against God that matters but what your reaction will be when a similar occasion that led you into such sin arises in the future. Whatever your history might have been don’t be eaten up by it; don’t give up on living rightly according to the will of God. A decision to respond to God will always go a long way to reduce the enterprise of the evil one in any domain.
Although God and men may forgive sins; history does not. However, history can be re-written just like the case of Paul initially known as Saul. The Lord is always ready to accept a man who turns to Him to live a new life.
Don’t you think you remain condemned if you are still living in Sin?
Prayer: Lord! Deliver me from every besetting sin in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: You are free from condemnation; if and only if you sin no more!
