So many people forget where they have come from. We all came from mess, and we all need to have grace & mercy with each other as we grow. It is too easy to look at others instead of looking in our own yard!
We need to mind our own business, and build each other in Jesus.
John 8:1-11. (the verse is below)
SHE SHOULD HAVE DIED FOR HER SIN ACCORDING TO THE LAW.
1. Jesus was brought a woman caught in the very ACT of adultery. Come on now, not a rumor, not an accusation, in the very act!
2. Jesus LOVES people!
The church world teaches God is waiting for you to make a mistake or make a poor decision (Anyone here ever made a bad decision?), and then He will bash you over the head and throw you in the pit as He sneers and laughs at you in judgment.
People get kicked out of churches because of certain sins WHICH IS STUPID!
4. The list is HUGE
Jesus doesn’t pacify sin, He desires to restore. He is focused more on restoration, than damnation. He loves us, and is passionate to bring us into right relationship with our Father.
Many times as we get older in the Gospel, and more refined by the Spirit, we forget where we have come from.
Sin is sin is sin is sin.
1. Romans 3:23, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
2. Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Sin separates, and we have some junk in our trunk.
GRACE & MERCY!!!!
John 8:1-11, Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2 but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. 3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd. 4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?” 6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust. 9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” 11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”
