We have a similar contrast in chapter 8 between “the law of sin and of death” (v. 2) and the action of God’s Son, who “condemned sin in the flesh” (v. 3)—and a further contrast between “those who live according to the flesh” and “those who live according to the Spirit (v. 5). Some say Paul draws a conclusion based on his survey of the entire preceding portion of the letter, but against that thought is his use of the phrase "in Christ" which would not be compatible with the preceding sections that do not describe one in union with Christ (e.g., Romans 1:18-3:20.

This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD." (Ro 14:10-note), Although there is no condemnatory judgment, all believers of course will indeed come before the judgment (bema) seat of Christ, but that divine "appointment" will not be for condemnation but for rewards (2 Corinthians 5:10) when "each man's praise (don't miss that - Paul says "each" which means all will receive praise from God!)

In the last section of Romans Paul writes "Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are outstanding among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. “It is impossible,” Luther remarks, “for a man to be a Christian without having Christ, and if he has Christ, he has at the same time all that is in Christ.
