Who then is the one who condemns? No one.

“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” ~Romans 8:34

Jesus Christ went to the cross over 2000 years ago. He instituted a new covenant that made the old law null and void. Yet, most of the world’s population still believes that a person’s conduct has something to do with them “going to heaven when they die”.

Bible translator Francois du Toit writes, “Religion under the law feels more comfortable with the condition of personal contribution rather than the conclusion of what faith reveals”.

He translates verse 34 as such: “What further ground can there possibly be to condemn mankind? In His death He faced our judgment; in His resurrection He reveals our righteousness; the implications cannot be undone! He now occupies the highest seat of authority as the executive of our redemption in the throne room of God.”

The death of Jesus Christ brought closure to our fallen condition in Adam and His resurrection is proof of our redeemed righteousness. If mankind was still guilty after Jesus died, His resurrection would be irrelevant!

Paul ends this chapter of Romans with this beautiful encompassing statement: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

I can only fall flat on my face in wondrous awe, overcome with gratitude. Thank you, Lord Jesus!

Have a blessed day!
