No Guilt in Life

We have been looking this week about being trapped by our fears and worries, or at least this is what has come out of our bible studies for me. And not only trapped by them,  but by the guilt of them!  It is the guilt which weighs me down, the guilt which traps me making me so conscious of my failures and inadequacies . If I am such a failure and can’t even do a little thing like overcome my fears, then how am I supposed to tell others about Jesus?  So I am Trapped and ineffective.

“There is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ” (Rom 8:1)

No condemnation? Not for my failures ? Not for my guilt?

Wow! NO condemnation! Just saying it brings such joy and makes my heart soar from its depths! No condemnation!

I am reminded now of the wonderful song by Stuart Townend: In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

“No guilt in life, no fear in death, this is the power of Christ in me …  No power of hell,  no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand; till He returns or calls me home, here in the power of Christ I’ll stand”

Here in the power if Christ I’ll stand. I’ll stand in the freedom He bought me, I’ll stand free from guilt, I’ll stand free from condemnation, for if He doesn’t condemn me, why should I condemn myself?!

“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm, therefore and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery” (Gal 5:1)

I’m standing then, are you on the fact there there is NO condemnation ?
