JESUS NEITHER CONDEMNS NOR CONDONES OUR SIN
Jesus mediated between the adulteress and her accusers, yet still called her out of her sinful lifestyle. For Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world, but that through Him it might be saved (John 3:17). As the Son of God, He is both the Light and the Life. As Light, our sinfulness is revealed in the brightness of His righteousness. As Life, He lays it down for our sin and is raised up for our justification (Rom. 4:25).
Jesus neither condemns nor condones our sin. Instead, He has made provision for it, so that we are set free and enabled by Him to walk in the Spirit and put off the works of the flesh.
PRAYER: Dear Father, help us to fix our eyes on Jesus today, so that we are able to walk in the freedom of His grace, knowing that there is no condemnation for those of us who are in Christ Jesus. Empower us to bear the fruit of the Spirit in our lives today. We thank You for the victory we have in Christ to have a desire to go and sin no more, and the assurance that when we do sin, Jesus has already paid for it. In Jesus’ name, amen.
