No Condemnation (Romans 8:1)

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 (KJV)

There is no condemnation when we understand who we are in Christ, when we no longer walk according to who we have been in the flesh, but according to who He has made us to be in Him. Condemnation must flee as we receive the immeasurable gift of God’s love for us in and through the finished works of Jesus.

Consider Heavenly Realities (Colossians 3:2-3)

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:2-3 (NKJV)

In order for us to live out of who we are in Christ, we are called to set our thoughts on the things above. We are called to consider heavenly realities by filling our hearts and minds with the Word of God. It is this daily renewing of the mind in the Word that makes us open, receptive and available to everything that has become true about us in Christ. It enables the wholeness, the peace of mind, the fulfillment and provision that is hidden in Him to become manifest as the day to day realities of our life.

Bold And Confident Faith (Mark 10:52)

And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Mark 10:52 (KJV)

Faith is what enables God’s glory to be made manifest in our lives. While the grace of God through the finished works of Jesus has already made available anything we need, it is our faith that takes possession of it. And so when we approach God, let us do so with boldness and confidence, knowing in our hearts that our Father is ready to freely provide all that is needed. There are no limits to those who will approach God with bold and confident faith.

Guard Your Heart (Proverbs 4:23)

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:23 (AMP)

Nothing is more important for us than to guard our hearts, for whatever is going on in our life can ultimately be traced back to what’s in our hearts. Guarding the heart means we do not allow anything to rob us of the peace that has come to us as a result of our meditating the Word and believing the promises of scripture. We keep our hearts fixed on Jesus no matter what.

Believe On Jesus (John 6:28-29)

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

John 6:28-29 (KJV)

To work the works of God—to live in a way that is pleasing to God and to fulfill His calling upon our lives—we are to simply believe on Jesus whom He has sent. When we believe that Jesus is enough to make us righteous, His Spirit works in us to transform us from the inside out. He reshapes our hearts and molds our desires so that they are in accordance with His will for our lives. This frees us bear fruit in His name. 

God Is Working In You (Isaiah 26:12)

Lord, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us.

Isaiah 26:12 (NKJV)

The more we can trust in God’s Spirit working in us, the more will we find ourselves at peace. We come to find that in all we are called to do, it is really God working in us—always in proportion to our faith—who enables us to walk in victory and live the overcoming life.

Guard Your Heart (Proverbs 4:23)

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:23 (AMP)

Nothing is more important for us than to guard our hearts, for whatever is going on in our life can ultimately be traced back to what’s in our hearts. Guarding the heart means we do not allow anything to rob us of the peace that has come to us as a result of our meditating the Word and believing the promises of scripture. We keep our hearts fixed on Jesus no matter what.

Nothing Can Separate Us From Him (John 10:28)

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:28 (KJV)

After we receive Jesus no one and nothing can ever separate us from Him. We have been joined unto Christ for eternity, and no amount of mistakes or shortcomings on our part can undo this union. Our role is to receive His precious gift of righteousness, and all that comes with it, by faith.
