“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (Jn. 3:17-18).
In John chapter eight verse one to eleven we are shown the epitome of the grace that Christ gives to anyone who comes to Him by His blood. It is the story of the woman caught in adultery. I do not know of any script that tells of grace and truth in flesh and blood than this. Now, has she sinned? Yes. Is there a judgement and penalty for her sin? Yes. But Christ saved her. Why?
The gospel of grace is one that no other religion can grasp its genuineness that one man would bear the sins of all. That is an asinine fatuity to the law mentality. Scarcely do people take the place of others for a crime. The only force that could drive that action is love. Friend, love Himself came down to take our place. Like the woman caught in adultery, we all are guilty of sin, not because we sin, but because we were born such and need salvation.
The woman was saved because Christ would carry the penalty weeks later. Because God deals with proper salvation, He saves a man from the inside out hence Jesus asking, “He who has no sin should cast the first stone”. There is more to this story to be digested later. God deals with the core of sin and there is no way we could be saved from our sins except we be born again.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus! There is no sin, be it past, present nor future that could bring damnation upon a believer of Jesus Christ. Why? Because it is finished! Jesus bore all our sins at the cross and died in our place, went to hell in our place and resurrected for our JUSTIFICATION.
The justification, thus the resurrection, is the receipt that the work of salvation is finished and all our sins are dealt with forever. Therefore, there is no condemnation to any born again man for he is not born anymore of the seed of the first man, Adam, but of the last, which is the Christ and the blood that flows through us is of God as well as our bodies, now His temple. Therefore, we are much saved!
No blunder or fault we do can draw us into paying for our own sin because ALL OF OUR SINS are settled by God himself. He knew no sin but became sin in our stead that we become the righteousness of God in Him – perfect! Walk therefore in this truth knowing you are His right-being and are perfect in God’s eyes. In His eyes when He looks at you He sees Jesus for, “as he is (without sin nor disease nor poverty) so are we in this world” (1 Jn. 3:7; 4:17). Why? Because it is finished!
