Life in the Spirit

Romans 8:1 1 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power[a] of the life-giving Spirit has freed you[b] from the power of sin that leads to death. 3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature.[c] So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.

vb

If we are in Christ the Word tells us that we are not condemned people because we belong to Him and He has freed us from sin and death through His Son, Jesus Christ.
