Condemn Me Not (with Video by Susie)

Condemnation

 

heavy

burden

pain

ache

weight

 

It is what you used to be under

 

but because of the weight of the cross

and the pain He endured

 

you no longer have to be

 

Condemned

 

And if you feel as if you are,

even though Jesus saved you

 

resist it!

 

Open your eyes to freedom

from condemnation

 

The enemy is a tyrant

 

and he will heartlessly

try to convince you

 

that your actions will earn you

a sneer from God

 

and a turning of His back,

leaving you alone

 

BUT

remember Truth!

 

Truth tells us

the love of the Lord for YOU is eternal

 

and there is absolutely no condemnation

for those who are in Christ Jesus

 

So don’t tolerate the weight of it

any longer

 

Confess

and turn

 

For every rule God put before you

is there for your good

 

not to harm

or stifle you

 

Walk in the absolutely

no strings attached

lavish grace

 

of the One who chose

to set you free of condemnation

 

– Susie Stewart

 

…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)

 

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.

– Romans 8:1,2 (MSG)

 

Because the Sovereign Lord helps me,
    I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
    and I know I will not be put to shame.
He who vindicates me is near.
    Who then will bring charges against me?
    Let us face each other!
Who is my accuser?
    Let him confront me!
It is the Sovereign Lord who helps me.
    Who will condemn me?
They will all wear out like a garment;
    the moths will eat them up.

– Isaiah 50:7-9 (NIV)

 

The Lord will rescue His servants;
    no one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned.

– Psalm 34:22 (NIV)

 

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

– James 4:7 (NLT)

 

This is how we know we’re living steadily and deeply in Him, and He in us: He’s given us life from His life, from His very own Spirit. Also, we’ve seen for ourselves and continue to state openly that the Father sent His Son as Savior of the world. Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God’s Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God. We know it so well, we’ve embraced it heart and soul, this love that comes from God.

God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.

– 1 John 4:15-18 (MSG)
