Last Friday, July 4th, we celebrated our Independence Day. We were all

saying to the world we have been set free. Many of you were at the park with

friends and love ones celebrating freedom. Some of you were in your

backwards, having your cookout. The world looks on and say we are free, but

as we look at ourselves today, are we all truly free. Maybe we are not bound

by chains, but are we free? Maybe we are not locked away in a jail cell, but

are we free? Maybe we can do whatever we choose to do, but are we really

free? True freedom takes place, only when Christ has set you free, and when

that takes place there is no more condemnation.

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Romans

8 verses 1 through 14. Let’s all stand and read together. Please tell someone,

we all can be truly free.

My topic for today is, In Christ, there is no condemnation. If you are

saved today, if Christ has taken control of your life, if you are a new creature

in Christ, then you can say, there is no condemnation. Your friends might not

think so, but you know, there is no condemnation. Since Christ has come, a

most wonderful thing has taken place, those who believe in him are not


Let’s look at verse 1 of our text (read) No condemnation mean that the

believer is not doomed, but is set free from the penalty of sin, he is not judged

as a sinner, but is delivered from condemnation of death and hell. Aren’t you

glad today that the slate has been wiped clean? Aren’t you glad that all those

evil things you once did are no longer held against you?


Please note very carefully, only the believer who is in Christ Je-sus will not

be condemned. All non-believers will face condemnation for sin. If you are

still living a life not pleasing to God, it is time to make a change, and put your

trust in Je-sus Christ.......elaborate...

There is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. What does it

mean to be "in Christ?’ To be in Christ means that the believer walks and

lives in Christ day by day. There are too many who say they are believers, but

they are what we might call a one a day Christian. They are a child of God on

Sunday, but they are something else Monday through

Saturday.......elaborate... A true believer is one who lives and moves and has

his being in Christ, finding the time to pray; finding the time to read God’s

Word; finding the time to be with other


That true believer in Christ does not walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

He denies ungodliness; he denies worldly lusts; and is willing to live soberly,

righteously and godly in this present world. He is sold out for Christ, placing

everything into the hands of Christ his Lord...........elaborate.... Are you sold

out for Christ, or does everything bothers you......

Let’s look at verses 2 through 4 of our text (read) Paul talks about "the law

of the Spirit of life," which means life in Je-sus Christ and Him alone. Life is

found only in Je-sus Christ. In John 10 verse 10 Je-sus says, I am come that

they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. In

John 14 verse 6, Je-sus says, I am the way the way, the truth and the life.

In 1 John 5 verse 12, the apostle John writes, He that hath the Son hath life;

and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. Thank God, there is life

in Christ Je-sus.........

How does the Spirit gives life? The Spirit gives life by freeing the believer

from sin and death. The Spirit of God frees a man from the rule and reign of

death. The Holy Spirit frees the believer to live as Christ lived. As believers,

somebody should see Christ living in us. Our walk should be Christ-like. Our

talk should be Christ-like..........elaborate....

The Spirit gives life by doing what the law could not do. The law could not

make man righteous, because man’s flesh is too weak to keep the law. Man

could not keep the law, and so God sent his son, in the likeness of sinful flesh

to condemn sin in the flesh. Oh. what a mighty God we serve. "The Spirit

gives life by Christ condemning sin in the flesh. The Spirit gives life by Christ

providing righteosuness for us." Of ourselves we could not live righteous, no

matter how hard we try, but the Spirit provides righteousness for those who

walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. When we believe that Jesus
