Daily devotional: Freedom in Christ Jesus

Scripture
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
Romans 8:1-2 NLT

Observation
We have awesome freedom from sin and death by belonging to Christ Jesus. His Holy Spirit frees us from the power of sin and gives us life!

Application
Rejoice and marvel at what God has done for me! Live in the reality of my freedom and new identity in Christ!

Prayer
Lord, how can I not rejoice every time I read or hear these verses?!? Thank you for showering me with Your grace, for sending Jesus to die so that my sins are not counted against me, and for raising Him to new life that I will also experience new life here and forevermore with You! Thank you that I don't have to live in shame and doubt and frustration since there is no condemnation waiting for me. I love you!
