We Don't Deserve It
Romans 8: 1-11
Paul talks in Romans (13:4) about the guilt of man according to his sin. He says that no one is found innocent. He makes clear that even with our best intentions, we can't be free from sin. (7: 15-24)
We are guilty!
Then we hear those beautiful, rejoicing words of Paul, "Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (7:25) In Jesus, you're not guilty.
1. In Jesus, there is now no condemnation, first, because Jesus Christ came to be our substitute: to live as our substitute under the Law, to do our jail time, to receive the guilty verdict and pay for our sins with His own life. As our ransom, Jesus was the payment offered to God for our sin. (I Peter 1: 18-19)
The sacrifice of a Lamb at the Passover was central; each year it was a substitutionary sacrifice and a foreshadowing of what was to come.
When John the Baptist spotted Jesus, he looked upon the real and greater substitute for sin Who would ultimately win forgiveness for the world by taking our place under the Law and dying as a sacrificial offering.
As our substitute, Jesus died in order to win for us forgiveness of sins.
2. Not only did He serve us as substitute, He gave us the Holy Spirit as gift and blessing.
With forgiveness won by Christ and His life offered in our place as substitute, the Holy Spirit is not given to make us holy and to give new direction to our lives.
When we live by the Spirit, we live with confidence in our resurrection (8: 10-11). We live with the confidence that we have been made "sons of God" (8:14). We look forward to the future glory of heaven (8:18). We realize that nothing can separate us from the love of God (8: 35-38).
Jesus was willingly condemned to set us free.
Jesus graciously gave us the Holy Spirit and made us victors forever in His name.
