No Condemnation

 

Though we make
a mess of things

and must work through
what we’ve done

You still do not
condemn those

in Jesus Christ
Your Son.

***********

There is no condemnation for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed [happy, fortunate, to be envied] are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless unbroken companionship]! ” Isaiah 30:18 AMP

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:14-17 NKJV

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2. NKJV

in Your sight.

can come to You
and always have
Your peace

for You have
overcome

and all that is
will one day bow
so undone by
the Son.
