​GOD DOES NOT CONDEMN YOU


John 3:17 “For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved”. 
The truth is this, God does not condemn you no matter what you have done. He is not interested in your sin but you. The blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross was to justify you, to declare you not guilty. He paid for your redemption. Even when we were all sinners, Christ still did not come to condemn us but to save us. This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.

Hebrews 12:24 “And to Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better things than the blood of Abel”. The blood of Abel cried out for judgment, vengeance, condemnation and damnation. But Jesus blood spoke of things better instead of judgment it cried for mercy, instead of vengeance it cried for pardon, instead of condemnation it cried for friendship and love. You’ve come to Jesus, who presents us with a new covenant, a fresh charter from God. He is the Mediator of this covenant. The murder of Jesus, unlike Abel’s? A homicide that cried out for vengeance? Became a proclamation of grace.

(John 8:11… and Jesus said unto her, neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more”). This is a woman caught in the very act of adultery which according to the law deserved condemnation and death. But here was Jesus not condemning her, neither did he give her in to be stoned to death. This is exactly who Jesus is and what he does. He does not condemn you and not only that, He also saved you from the consequences of your sin.

2 Corinthians 5:19 “to wilt, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them…” God made the first move to restore back our friendship with him. He won’t have done that if he still condemns you. He does not impute on you your sins. He needs your friendship, He need you closer to Him now. Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you.

Stop running away from Him thinking He still condemns you. 

For God does not condemn you. You are precious to HIM.
