THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. [John 3:18.]” Romans 8:1 AMP

Most of the time we feel so condemned by our own spirit due the mistakes we make in our lives. We even sometimes fines it difficult to forgive ourselves for our faults.

And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence (complete assurance and boldness) before God,” 1 John 3:21 AMP

The duty of the Holy Spirit in fellowship when we feel condemned is to help us to move forward.

A great example is a father and his child that failed his or her exam from moving to the next grade. So the child feels terrible, because of his or her performance. Then all of a sudden the Father shows up in the scene and instead of condemning the child. He motivates  the child to redo the exam again and makes sure the child doesn’t dwell in the past, but he or she should look towards the future.

Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him].” 1 John 3:20 AMP

This is how a relationship is with the Holy Spirit in fellowship  when we feel condemned by the world, family in Christ, friends and ourselves, due to our faults.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. In the name of Jesus Christ every spirit of condemnation that is fighting my fellowship with the Holy Spirit I bind it in Jesus Christ mighty name  and loose approval. And I declare that I am accepted in the beloved  in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
