Romans 8:1 says "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,"
This is still the best news ever, truly the best of good news. To stand 'not condemned' before God despite our waywardness, rebellion and selfishness is simply the essence of joy. It means we're accepted by God, not rejected, we're heading for heaven, not hell.
But who can enjoy this blessing? Well it's for all those who are in Christ Jesus. That is, those who are filled with the Spirit of Christ.
Has this always been our lot? No, it's only NOW, i.e. only since we came to Christ, that there is no condemnation, for once we were at enmity with God, slaves to sin, and under wrath. But NOW we have been translated - from death to life, from darkness to light, from sin to righteousness, from Hell to Heaven, and from Satan to God. (GW)
