This passage is connected to the previous one Bob Haas so poignantly wrote about.
Now for the Sea Change; the biggest change of our lives. Write it large; put it on all the headlines of the internet news and newspapers. Never forget this. Repeat it everyday!
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:1-2, NIV).
8 1-2 “With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death” (The Message).
This is all the difference between living life in the “flesh” or trying to live it “on our own” strength, or “moral muscle” and living in “the realm of the Spirit,” “the Spirit of Christ.” You can read the difference in this passage. We know the difference when are honest about our lives.
This day celebrate your life in the Spirit; your no more condemnation life in Christ Jesus. For “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him” (John 3:17).
Celebrate life in Christ Jesus this day. And with whom will you share this Good, Great News that changes all of life?
