“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1.
What does it mean to be “in Christ Jesus?”
Think about what it was for Noah to be in the ark.
The ark was waterproof.
How do we know it was?
God told Noah, “put pitch on the inside and on the outside.” Genesis 6:14.
The word “pitch” in the Hebrew is “kapar!”
It is exactly the same word translated as “atonement.”
We are in Jesus as Noah was in that ark.
Just as the storms of God’s wrath beat upon that ark-
– the storms of God’s wrath beat upon the Lord Jesus.
We are on the inside!
And not one drop of judgment can come through.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded 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.” Romans 35-39.
Reflect on the things Paul says which will never separate you from God’s love.
Give glory to God that your sins have been atoned by the righteous blood of the Saviour.
