No Stones In Hand

John 8:3-11 – 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.”And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

As we know, Jesus came to take away the sin of the world, to show the way, and to bring that which is in heaven upon the earth. Jesus was also the reflection or mirror of man’s true God given nature. Here are a few points to take in consideration concerning the incident with Jesus:

* God’s nature is not to condemn, but to free man from his sins or bondage.

* No matter the sin, God wants man to know that He does not condemn Him. When man embraces God’s love, he tends to cease from sin.

* Through Jesus’ response he clearly showed man that there are no accusations in heaven, and there should not be any on the earth.

* The only true opinion that man should consider is the Lord’s. God’s thoughts are to give man a future and a hope.

* No matter the situation, no stone throwing.

* Once man encounters God’s true love, he awakens out of his demonic stupor and willingly lays down those things that have caused him to kill, steal, and destroy.

* Love covers a multitude of sin.

* Love does not take account of sins, but forgives them. Jesus was not only forgiving the adulterer, but also His and the adulterer’s accusers. He wishes all men to be saved, even our enemies.

* If we are throwing stones, it only proves we have sin in our life.

* Don’t entangle yourself with the affairs of this life, but get lost in His.

*Love all. Give “Life”.
