Jesus’ goal during His earthly ministry was to demonstrate grace to people, not condemn them. Condemnation is not from God, but from Satan. It is far-reaching and deadly; the enemy uses it against us because he has been judged guilty. He is now trying to pass his condemnation on to us. Freedom and true change the way God intends only comes by accepting and preaching the ministry of reconciliation, to remind ourselves and others of who we are and what we have in Christ.
