Romans 8:34 – Jesus Christ, Judge and Intercessor

Romans 8:34
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

-Jesus Christ paid with blood for the right to judge the whole Earth; instead of using that authority to condemn us all, He instead pleads on our behalf that we be absolved from our crimes.  Romans 8:1 tells us that, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”  There can be no condemnation for those that are saved because who else could condemn us but Christ?  If others try, Christ will silence them with His own authority.  The Lord came not to destroy our lives, but to save them.
