“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.”
Romans 8 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible, because it gives us the answer to depression about the past, present, and future.
It tells us there is no condemnation for our past, because verse 1 says, “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus” (NLT). When we sin (and we all sin), the Devil will condemn us. And then we join in that condemnation and condemn ourselves.
Yet what does the Bible say? First John 1:9 tells us, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (NKJV).
