Not Guilty!

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, August 5, 2011

"Who will bring any charge against thou whom God has chosen?" Romans 8: 33


There is no sin in God's book against His people: he sees no sin in Jacob, neither sin in Israel; they are justified in Christ forever. When the guilt of sin was taken away, the punishment of sin was removed. For the Christian there is no stroke from God's angry hand - no, not so much as a single frown of punitive justice. The believer may be chastised by his Father, but God the Judge has nothing to say to the Christian, except " I have absolved you: you are acquitted."

No lust is too mighty, no besetting sin too strongly entrenched; we can overcome through the power of Christ. Do believe it, Christian, that your sin is a condemned thing. It may kick and struggle, but it is doomed to die. Christ has crucified it, "nailing it to His cross." Live in His praise, for sin with all its guilt, shame, and fear, is gone!
