“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” - Romans 8:1
When you became a child of God, you were placed in Christ Jesus. As believers it matters how you live after your salvation. You will never come into condemnation ever again, but you will be judged with what you have done with your life since you were saved. Not for the purpose of deciding whether you will get into heaven or not, but to reveal to you a wasted Christian life. My friend, you are sealed by the Holy Spirit of God inside of Christ. No one can snatch you out of His hands; you are eternally secure. Walk and obey Him!
If you truly are a child of God, you are in Christ; you need to begin to think that way with out even choosing to think that way. When Jesus said, “It is finished,” it really is finished. You are already in His presence. God sees you blameless and righteous because He sees you in His Son, and He loves you to the same degree He loves Jesus. You are completely forgiven, totally accepted, and eternally secure in Christ Jesus.
