This particular verse came from yesterday’s sermon as a compliment to last week’s sermon that focused around Nehemiah 8:10… the sermon was titled Conquering Condemnation… simply put it explained exactly what Romans 8:1 means.
Pastor Fikri of Bridge Church (formerly PlantMiami) talked to us about how this particular verse is actually not for everyone.
- He told us that it was a conditional verse for those who are in fact followers of Christ.
- He pointed out that there is a difference between fearing God and being afraid of Him.
- He said that our God is not a God of punishment but of mercy and that
- God never rejects us but that Jesus is the only one able to successfully bridge us to God.
Romans 8:1 says this
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
and at the end of the day as long as we remain in Christ there will be absolutely NO condemnation!!!
So there you have it this weeks Chew on This verse!!! Happy Memorizing and Reciting!!
