No Annihilation

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:1 (NLT)

Condemnation. It’s the sentence or punishment given to a person after they have had their due process in court. Paul had just finished writing, “Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?” Then he answers that question by writing, “Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.” So because of Christ, Paul could say in today’s verse that our condemnation is gone. This is a tremendous truth and should give us inexplicable joy and yet so many who name Christ as their Savior do not live as if it is true. Why is this? I believe it is because they are still living in their own shame, their own dread, their own fear of more than condemnation. It is the fear of annihilation. That is why today’s verse is so important. You must read it as if both are true. There is no condemnation therefore there is no annihilation! This is not something you have to earn and it is not something you can lose. It is given to you freely by Jesus Himself. His love for you is unconditional and Paul finishes Romans 8 assuring us that nothing, nothing, NOTHING can separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. So today, read it, believe it; there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. You are no longer a slave to fear, you are a child of God!

Dear Jesus, thank You that I can say today, “There is no fear of condemnation or annihilation because of what You have done for me!”
Thank You for setting me free.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
