Do you know there's no condemnation (wrong) for those of us who live with Christ Jesus in our heart? That doesn't mean we can live like the devil, it just means we have been set free from the bondage of living according to our flesh and we are therefore, living according to the spirit that dwells within us. It means we are now new creations through the God who lives in us. Oh yes, Romans 8:1-4 says,
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit."That also means that the slate has been wiped clean and the Lord God forgave us for our sins when He died on the cross for us. Or we can put it this way:
"Those who enter into Christ’s being here for us, no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death" (Romans 8:1-4).We are free in Christ.
