“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
The “therefore” here connects us with what has just been stated.
When Jesus indwells a heart (see 7:25), one of God’s greatest gifts to this person is the fact that condemnation is no longer a part of his life. The law is no longer what defines a person’s salvation. If obedience to the law no longer defines a person’s relationship with God, what does? It’s the person’s personal relationship with Jesus. He paid the price for all our sins. He has given us his righteousness We have been declared “not guilty.” We are “in Christ."
The condemnation that came because of our disobedience to the law of God has now been absorbed in Christ. We are forever forgiven. Jesus has met all the righteous requirements of the law. We are in him. He is in us. Therefore, condemnation cannot be a part of the Christian’s experience. God will never condemn us again. We are free. We are not under sin or law. We are in Christ Jesus. If we ever feel condemnation, it comes from the evil one, the one who actively opposes Jesus in us.
Thanks be to God! He who knew no sin became our sin that we may become the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
To him alone and always belongs all the glory!
