As Christians, it’s often hard for us to truly comprehend the depths of what Christ did for us. On a high level, we understand salvation, we know our stained garment is washed white. Do you truly understand what that white garment means?
Romans 8:1-4 KJV
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
When we choose to walk after Christ, and abandon the will of the flesh, something amazing happens. There is no condemnation in us, meaning, in all the ways we fall short of the glory of God, we no longer are attributed to them. In judgement, the eternal death we rightfully deserve is replaced with everlasting life with God.
What the law could not do for us, what it lacked, is that we could never attone for our sins, and therefore were doomed. Our flesh was the basis for the law, and it is already tainted. Christ was absolutely necessary for us to be able to have everlasting life.
So I ask to to consider the scope of what Christ has done for you and for me. Through His willing sacrifice, we can live forever with Him.
Try to not smile about that!
