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

be the cause

of another to stumble
and fall.

Lord, let me not be
overcome with evil

but overcome evil
with good

associating with
the humble

not thinking more of me

Imagine

 

If their failure
meant our gain

imagine what
fullness will mean?

If their casting away
brought reconciliation

acceptance will be joy
not yet seen!

*********

You are with me as the Root and graft me into Your tree.

*********

“Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!”

“For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”

Romans 11:12,15 NKJV

You Will Be Saved

 

When we confess
with our mouths

the Lord Jesus Christ
and call upon His name

believing with our hearts
God raised Him from the dead

we will be saved
and not put to shame.

*********

You are with me and save me.

**********

“. . .if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

No Compare

 

The sufferings of
this present time
won’t be worthy
to compare

with the glory
revealed in us
through Jesus, our hope
our prayer.

**********

The glory of You with me far outweighs my sufferings.

**********

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Freed

 

Jesus was raised
from the dead
by the glory of
the Father

so we can walk
in newness of life
freely
ever after.

**********

You are with me and free me from sin.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
