Scripture Reading: Romans 8:11
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Reflections: The Greek word ‘ katakrima’ translated ‘condemned’ implies an ‘adverse sentence’. Once you are condemned by court proceedings, a warrant is issued to arrest and place you in prison custody to serve an adverse sentence. If however the condemnation is revoked, a discharge warrant is issued to set you free. A warrant is a court-sanctioned document that authorizes a person, usually a law enforcement officer, to take action. Through sin we were condemned and made to serve adverse sentences. However the death and resurrection of Christ revoked every condemnation ( Col 2:13-15). It issued out a discharge warrant to us with the words ‘there is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus’. You cannot therefore remain condemned in the prison of sicknesses, poverty, frustrations etc any longer. You have a discharge warrant in your hand. Break free from every satanic imposed sentence over your life. Enforce it through prayer.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you for the freedom I have through your shed blood.
Confession: By the divine discharge order, I break free from every satanic sentence imposed over my life.
