If you believe in Jesus Christ, you won’t be condemned

Last updated on July 5, 2022


Truly, truly, I [Jesus] say to you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” (John 5:24)

Every single human will give an account of himself to God. The outcome is already clear: we all have sinned, and therefore earn God’s wrath. But if you believe in Jesus Christ, He has paid for all of your sins — past, present and future. He was sentenced to death on your behalf. As the prophet Isaiah phrases it, “He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities” (Isaiah 53:5). That judgment has already been carried out.

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”, the apostle Paul says (Romans 8:1). Nobody can charge you before God for anything you have done wrong, since God Himself has justified you. You need not be afraid of God’s coming judgment anymore.

Believers do “fear the Lord”. However, this phrase does not mean that they are afraid of God, but that they deeply respect Him. They can come into His presence with reverence, but also with the full assurance that faith brings; trusting in His unending love.

Do you believe that Jesus Christ has paid for your sins?
