Negatives To The Saved

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).

The little word “no” is extremely important in the spiritual realm, but perhaps nowhere is it more important than in our text where it provides the basis for our security in Christ. The verdict before salvation was guilty, but after receiving Christ, not guilty. Now there is no condemnation.

Furthermore, once saved, believers are to obey the following Scriptural commands:

Avoid divisions: “That ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you” (I Corinthians 1:10).

Keep your testimony pure: “Giving no offense in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed” (II Corinthians 6:3). Many of God’s servants are hurting the ministry.

Avoid unholy alliances: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11).

Keep your speech pure: “Let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile” (I Peter 3:10). In other words, don’t use treachery and deceit in dealing with others.

Avoid sin: “Now I pray to God that ye do no evil” (II Corinthians 13:7). We should continually ask the Lord to “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:13).

Keep from outward displays of pride: “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 6:1).

Keep your eyes on Christ: “And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves” (Mark 9:8). NPS
