KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:3 KJV” And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,”
Many marriages are tension dominated. Wife is at husband’s throat, and vice versa.
A relationship that began to be ever happy after, has become ever fighting always.
What is the cause of this? It is a self-condemning attitude deep down the hearts of the couples. Nearly a hundred percent unsatisfactory feeling, that many have about themselves proceed from a self-condemning attitude. This began in the garden of Eden, after Adam and Eve had sinned. They saw they were naked, resulting in fear, which later became accusations upon accusations. Those men who brought the woman to Jesus, were in the same dilemma.
What can save men from this inner cycle of defeat. The answer is in the cross of Christ. The Lord Jesus came to suffer and die for all of us, so that we could be identified with Him, in all that He did and went through for us. Romans 6:4 KJV “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” When a man expresses faith in Jesus, He is spiritually immersed into Christ by the Holy Spirit. The word immersed is translated baptizo in the Greek language. The scripture said we are baptized into His death, baptized into His resurrection, baptized into His righteousness. Every child of God is the very righteousness of God 2 Corinth 5:21. There is no more any sense of condemnation in the child of God. He has the very righteousness of God and must always carry that attitude. If he sins, he has broken that sweet fellowship with his Father and must quickly ask for forgiveness.
Jesus in the life of men coupled with clear teaching about the great substitution work of Christ will free all from the life of hatred to one another, manifesting true love, because that love of God has been shared abroad in our hearts. Religious zealots who are always filled with rage, accusations and constantly hurting others are probably lost in their sins. Come to Jesus today.
I am in Christ Jesus, I am righteous with Jesus’ righteousness, I have the love of Christ in me. Christ is alive in me. I have no sense of condemnation, neither do I condemn anyone. My words bless, uplifts, heal and put a smile on the faces of all who come close to me. Oh, what a life!
THOUGHT: IN CHRIST I AM NOT CONDEMNED, NEITHER DO I CONDEMN ANYONE.
Romans 8:1 KJV “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Romans 8:34 KJV “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”
