Your Sin is Already Judged

I know sin is preached quite a bit by most believers; however it should be made clear that God has already judged sin, and this is no longer an issue with Him. Does this mean one should go out there and sin- absolutely not! because while God is no longer judging sin, the wages of sin is still death and sin creates an avenue for the devil to enter to rob, steal, kill and destroy a person.

So because Jesus became sin, separated from the Father for us, blotting out our entire lives of sin, what will keep a person separated from God is not sin, but the rejection of what Christ Jesus has lovingly and willingly done on our behalf to bring us into unity with God.

It is central to our good news that God was in the Anointed making things right between Himself and the world. This means He does not hold their sins against them. But it also means He charges us to proclaim the message that heals and restores our broken relationships with God and each other.

So we are now representatives of the Anointed One, the Liberating King; God has given us a charge to carry through our lives—urging all people on behalf of the Anointed to become reconciled to the Creator God. He orchestrated this: the Anointed One, who had never experienced sin, became sin for us so that in Him we might embody the very righteousness of God. 2Cor 5:19-21

“The power of sin and death has been eclipsed by the power of the Spirit. The Spirit breathes life into our mortal, sin-infested bodies—thanks to what Jesus has done for us. By sending His Son in “the likeness of sinful flesh,” God judges sin finally and completely. The sins of the world are concentrated and condemned in the flesh of Jesus as He hangs on the cross. So now there is no condemnation remaining for those who’ve entered into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.”
