"Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death." (Romans 8:1-2 AMPC)
Don't accept condemnation from anyone, if you are in Christ Jesus. Jesus paid the price for our salvation and that gives us freedom from condemnation.
"If you hear my words and refuse to follow them, I do not judge you. For I have not come to judge you but to save you. If you reject me and refuse to follow my words, you already have a judge. The message of truth I have given you will rise up to judge you at the Day of Judgment." (John 12:47-48 TPT)
Yes, we make mistakes, we sin, and God is not surprised by any of this and provided restoration for us in His Word.
There is forgiveness:
“But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time. God is just to forgive us our sins because of Christ, and he will continue to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9 TPT)
There is mercy and everlasting love:
“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” (Lamentations 3:22-23 NLT)
