[The Glory Unveiled]
For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. [ 1 John 3:20 KJV ]
Condemnation is a very powerful nation with a tyrant who oppresses its victims and rules perpetually over those caught in its boundaries. The spirit of condemnation has kept half the world in prison and the other half wondering whether they are in prison or not. It pitches its tent in the hearts of its victims and spreads its cancer through the soul. But there is a higher courtroom for the human heart: it is where grace is enthroned. The very worst that is in us is known by God and He still showers mercy, love, and acceptance upon us—as if our worst was deleted or swallowed up by another person. This is the greatness of God’s grace. He sees beyond the sin of a moment and sees the holy affections of love in those who refuse to turn away from Him. God through His Son has made it possible for us to come into a time when we are set free from the dungeon of condemnation. In Romans 8:1, the Bible says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Freedom from the tyranny of condemnation is possible only when we walk after the leading of the Holy Spirt. Yes, we begin to live in a state of no condemnation when we come into Christ by surrendering to His lordship and submitting to the leading of His Spirit. And then, even if our hearts condemn us, God who knows all things and is greater than our hearts helps us by giving us boldness to speak to God. So, let’s break free from condemnation. Let’s not walk any longer in the patterns of the flesh as we used to. Instead, let us walk in the path of the Spirit of God.
