Devotion for Friday in the Second Week in Lent

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

~ Romans 8:1-2

No condemnation! The world condemns us. The enemy condemns us. The self-righteous holier-than-thou contingent condemns us. But the only One who matters, the only One who has a legitimate right to condemn us, the only One who is truly holier than us, does not condemn. Instead, God gives us grace and forgiveness.

Gracious and forgiving God, my actions deserve Your condemnation. But I belong to Christ Jesus, and He has taken on the condemnation and punishment for my sins. I can stand before You in holiness and righteousness, not of myself, but through the Blood of Jesus. I praise You and thank You and worship You. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

These daily devotions are available in a book The Grace of God, with all profits donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. L4L shares the Good News of the Gospel with the least and unreached by making disciples of Jesus who make disciples (2 Tim 2:2) and by helping to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor.
