Reason #12 – To Take Away Our Condemnation
There is no double jeopardy in God’s court. We will not be condemned twice for the same offenses. Christ has died once for our sins. We will not be condemned for them. Condemnation is gone not because there isn’t any, but because it has already happened.
Our entire fall series at CrossPoint last year dealt with this principle. Ryan Whitley did 13 weeks on Romans 8. The first verse is Piper’s basis for this truth:
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Ryan did a much better job unpacking this than I ever can. – His sermon can be found here.
