THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, WHO DO
PHILIP GENESIS BOADU    [email]    ( Ghana ) 2018-04-25     Views : 115     Touched : 27
THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRISTJESUS, WHO DO NOT WALK ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, BUT ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT. (Romans 8:1

Many bible versions have taken away the second part of this verse, "who do not walk according to the flesh , but according to the spirit"

Those who walk according to the flesh always believe that, though they are Christians but they are sinners so they need to ask for forgiveness of sin everyday. They don't believe in Jesus' ability to forgive sin and impute on us the righteousness of God Matthew 3:15, Romans 6:18. For this reason, they always try to establish their own righteousness so they cannot put themselves under the righteousness of God. Romans 10:1-3. They don't believe in the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world John 1:29

Those who walk according to the spirit are those who believe that it is Jesus who has done all their works for them so they have no righteousness of their own. They believe that the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made them free from the law of sin and death. They have become slave to the righteousness of God. Romans 6:18.

There are a lot of bible verses that we need to take the spiritual mind to read. For example 1John 1:8-9, Proverbs 28:13 and Romans 6:1. Those who walk according to the flesh think those passages are meant for Christians. When you take the proverbs 28:13 it reads "He who conceals (covers) his sin shall not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them find mercy" Look this passage is completely not for the believer. Believers sins have been covered by God Himself and not by us. Romans 4:7-8 support this fact. So it is the unbeliever who conceals his sin who the bible is talking about.

Again, in 1 John 1:8-9 says "if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. Again, this passage is completely not for the believer. Look every believer can claim to be without sin because Jesus has covered his sin and has made him righteous. He has no conscious of sin but conscious of his righteousness in Jesus. The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has delivered him from the law of sin and death. We must also not loose the fact that there is only one sin in the world so we need only one sacrificial lamb to attone for it. Jesus baptized, died and resurrected for our sins once. He has cleansed and perfected us forever.

Walk according to the spirit and you will begin to appreciate the real love of God. Jesus the Holy spirit keeps no record of the believers sin. Stop judging and condemning yourself. You have no condemnation in His presence okay. AMEN.
