Romans 8:34

Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Devotional Thoughts

By David Wilkerson

Beloved, the Holy Ghost convicts but He never condemns. His ministry is to convict of sin. But He does this only to heal — to bring men and women to a place of peace and rest in Christ. And He does this redemptively, not with wrath.

"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" (Romans 8:34). The Lord is saying, "Who condemns you? Why are you walking around under condemnation, when your Savior is before Me right now, pleading your cause?"

The only condemnation remaining is upon those who refuse the light of the gospel: "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil" (John 3:19).

If you love to have the Word of God come and expose everything in your heart, then you are no longer condemned. Condemnation remains only for those who hide sin and love darkness! You do love the light, do you not? So why allow condemnation?

Yet perhaps you are assaulted by a temptation you can't seem to shake off. Or maybe you carry a sense of never measuring up, of unworthiness — a fear that the devil is going to trip you up and you're going to fail God.

This is the day for you to wake up to God's love to you!
