Romans 8:1 Meditation

Text (Rom 8:1, NIV):

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus..."

Amplified Rendering:

In the eternal now of God's ever-redeeming Presence, the eternal penalty (death and separation from God) over our sinfulness(1) no longer exists for those clinging to the finished work(2) of His Anointed One: The Lord Jesus Christ, Yahweh Our Savior. For those yoked(3) to Jesus, their sins have been paid for in full(4) and eliminated eternally(5)! Thanks be to God!

Consecrating Prayer:

Holy Father...

I'm so very grateful to be Your son(6), friend(7), and slave(8). I owe it all to Jesus and to what He did for me. In my helplessness, He did for me what I couldn't do for myself(9). I cling to Him, O God! And to the work He finished. Save Him, there's nothing that can help me. With Him, with You, with Your Spirit, I have all I need. Long before I even think to ask for anything, it's already been given(10).

In the Name of Jesus, I declare these truths...
