There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:1-4 ESV)
Hymn ELH 484:1-2 Christ Alone Is Our Salvation
Christ alone is our salvation,
Christ the rock on which we stand;
Other than this sure foundation
Will be found but sinking sand.
Christ, His cross and resurrection,
Is alone the sinner’s plea;
At the throne of God’s perfection
Nothing else can set him free.
We have all things, Christ possessing:
Life eternal, second birth,
Present pardon, peace, and blessing
While we tarry here on earth;
And by faith’s anticipation,
Foretaste of the joy above
Freely giv’n us with salvation
By the Father in His love.
Gracious Heavenly Father, by grace through faith in Your Son, I am no longer condemned in Your sight. Help me to walk in Your Spirit all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
