No Condemnation for Those Who Are In Christ Jesus

If you’re like me, there are times when you wonder about where you stand in relation to God. There are times when we find ourselves messing up more than usual, and it causes us to wonder. Maybe there’s a habitual sin that has crept backinto your life or something has made you more aware of how imperfect you really are. So, you find yourself wondering, “Am I really saved? Will he really let me into his kingdom?” We struggle to be sure of where we stand with God because we know that in and of ourselves, we could never measure up to his standards.

How easily we forget that we were never saved based on how good we are. Salvation is not based on performance, merit, or how much Bible we know. It’s based on a relationship with Jesus! Romans 8: 1 says, There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

You see, the only thing that determines whether we’re really saved is whether we are in Christ Jesus. Are you in him? Do you have a relationship with Jesus? Have you made him the Lord and Savior of your life? If the answer is “yes” then you can rest assured that your eternity is secure! There is no condemnation for you if you’re in him! He has already paid the price for all your wrongdoing and given you eternal life.
