Romans 8:1 (WEB)

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

Promise #283: Because of Jesus, you are free from all condemnation.

This is a wonderful promise that we can all take to heart. There is therefore now NO condemnation! Many of us struggle with feelings of shame and condemnation every day. This Scripture tells us that because of what Jesus did, we do not have to live under condemnation any longer.
However, when you read the WEB Bible translation of Romans 8:1, it seems like there is a bit of a disclaimer to the statement ‘There is therefore now no condemnation…” The disclaimer is …who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For me, when I was a young Christian and read this verse, I felt that if I somehow was walking after the flesh, then I would be subject to condemnation.
I truly believe that the heart of this verse is better translated in the ESV translation of the Bible which says in Romans 8:1-2…1There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (ESV)
Notice that after the promise of no condemnation there is a period. The disclaimer (who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit) is not there… and it is not there in the original Greek translation either!
I truly believe that because of the finished work of Jesus Christ there is therefore now NO condemnation…period! The law of the Spirit of life has set us free from the law of sin and death. Hallelujah!
