John‬ ‭8:3-12‬ ‭

“Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 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. 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.” And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 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. 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?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.””

-The Scribes and Pharisees based their arguments on the law and missed on the grace of God. They brought a woman caught in adultery before Jesus and wanted to condemn her by the law. Jesus invoked their consciousness saying that, whoever has no sin let him throw the first stone. No one condemned her and Jesus set her free. He instructed that she should longer sin but follow His way of light. Jesus reminds us that we should seek Him first and follow Him, and embrace His salvation power upon our lives. 


Condemnation originates from sin, and the devil causes us to feel guilty resulting to death, first spiritually then physically. He is the accuser of the brethren and accuses us daily, but we have victory in Jesus Christ. Judas was a disciple of Jesus who betrayed Him with thirty silver coins. His condemnation became too much to bear, and he returned the coins to the chief priest, and hang himself without repentance. We can trace the origin of condemnation from the Old Testament, that resulted from the first sin by Adam and Eve. Condemnation by definition means to strongly disapprove, sentence or punish. After sin entered the world, we find Cain who killed Abel his brother Abel out of jealousy, and his blood continually cried to God. He was cursed and he became a vagabond. Jesus Christ corrected this by dying on the cross for our sins and redeemed us by His blood that speaks better things than that of Abel. King David felt condemned after he orchestrated the death of Uriah and took his wife Bathsheba. After he repented, prophet Nathan gave him the report that the Lord had taken away his sin and he was not going to die (2 Samuel 12:13). In the New Testament, we find a woman caught in adultery and was condemned to death. Jesus saved her by commanding that, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (John 8:7). We see Jesus exercising His power of forgiveness of sins, restoration and giving her underserved favor. Romans 3:23 tells us that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We are called to repent our sinned and embrace the forgiveness power of Jesus which yields life in abundance. We are also reminded that even though the devil accuses us of sin that causes death, Jesus has destroyed the power of death and has given us the eternal life. Each one of us is called to carry his cross daily, deny himself and follow Jesus, so that we may have always rejoice in Him. We are called to abide in Christ and His saving power for there is no condemnation for all those who are in Christ Jesus.


Sing to the Lord a new song, praise His holy name. Proclaim His salvation day after day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples. Great are You Lord and most worthy of praise. Only You are to be feared above all gods. All gods of the nations are idols, but only You Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before You; strength and glory are in Your sanctuary. We worship You dear Jesus for You sacrificed Your life for our salvation. We worship You Lord for You love us with an everlasting kind of love; despite our shortcomings. We humbly come to You feet asking You for Your mercy. May You deliver us from all evil and wash us with Your precious blood merciful Savior. May You deliver us from any accusation in the courts of heaven and show us Your grace. We come to Your throne of grace with boldness that we may obtain mercy and grace to help us during our time of need. Your grace is sufficient for us and Your power is made perfect in weakness, for when we are weak, then we are strong for You are with us and in us Holy Spirit. May You lead us Holy Spirit in Your way of truth and light. May You renew our minds and transform us to be like You dear Jesus. May You transform all those who partaking of drugs, alcohol, adultery, fornication, money laundering, murder and all sorts of evil. May You wash us all with Your precious blood and transform us dear Jesus. May You draw our hearts close to Yours that we may look to You alone loving Savior. May You restore all the broken relationships and marriages dear Jesus. May You grant the grace of marriage unto all Your children who are waiting on You Abba Father. May You answer our prayers and hearts desires merciful Savior. May we achieve all that You have called to do here on earth. We praise You dear Jesus and worship You, and it is in Jesus mighty name we pray trusting and believing. Amen

Blessed Weekend
