What if Christians were as concerned with…

What if christians were as concerned with bringing people to the place of forgiveness as they are condemning their sin?

[2] Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. [3] The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst [4] they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. [5] Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” [6] This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. [7] And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” [8] And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. [9] But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. [10] Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” [11] She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.” (John 8:2-11 ESV)

Can you imagine how she felt? Filled with guilt and shame, no excuses, “caught IN THE ACT”. How horrible it must have been to feel so hopeless yet to be brought into the presence of Holiness.

Who could have guessed Jesus reaction. She could not have. Neither can I which is why I continually marvel at this story.

Jesus receives a sinful, condemned woman, defends her to those who had no business condemning, tells her that He does not condemn her, forgives her sin and points her to a new life – a God life – one that has the faith of Jesus at the center of it. It reminds me a lot of myself – how He received me when I did not feel received by God’s people, when I felt condemned. I know what it’s like to need A LOT of forgiveness.

Some of us need to put down our stones and start bringing people to Jesus for forgiveness instead of condemnation.

You all know someone who, like this woman, doesn’t attend church because of a past condemnation. It’s time for them to return – it’s time to “come home” – it’s time for them to receive their forgiveness from the only One who has the power to offer full and total mercy and forgiveness: The Savior, Jesus Christ.
