“This they said to try (test) Him, hoping they might find a charge on which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger. However, when they persisted with their question, He raised Himself up and said, Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”
John 8:6-7 AMPC
Jesus was the only One without sin in that group. He could have thrown the first stone and be totally justified but He didn’t.
He didn’t condemn the woman but in the eyes of the people she was. Instead of condemnation He extended grace to her.
“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.”
Romans 8:1 NLT
You don’t have to go on living with condemnation. Get rid of condemning thoughts at all costs. Jesus doesn’t condemn you so why let other people condemn you?
Condemnation from people is tough but self condemnation is just as bad if not worse.
Stop passing sentence on your self because of the mistakes you have made. Jesus forgave you, so you can forgive yourself.
Instead of condemnation, the Lord has extended grace to you. Take it.
The enemy condemns. He wants to see you depressed and ashamed. He wants to see you buried in guilt, unable to look yourself in the mirror.
He is the accuser and wants you buried.
“Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.””
Zechariah 3:1, 3-4 NIV
Approach the throne of grace with your condemnation and lay it at Jesus’ feet. Let Him replace it with love and grace.
He wants to free you of condemnation. Today is the day of deliverance.
Bless you friends
