There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1
The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution—besides containing the well-known protection against self-incrimination—also contains the so-called “Double Jeopardy Clause”: “Nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” In general, this clause protects against being tried or punished twice for the same crime.
The New Testament contains another kind of double jeopardy protection, expressed most succinctly in Romans 8:1: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” That is, since Christ died for all our sins, we cannot be condemned and judged for sins we might commit again. If anyone—Satan in particular—should accuse us before God of being terrible sinners, Christ is there “at the right hand of God . . . [making] intercession for us” (Romans 8:34). Christ is our Advocate (attorney): “I have paid for all of his sins.”
We all sin, but Christ has paid for all our sin. Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who have accepted His payment.
The Lord Jesus has paid too high a price for our redemption to leave us in the enemy’s hand. Charles H. Spurgeon
