Hearts of men and what is in store there
John 8:10 Straightening up, Jesus said to her, ” woman where are they? Did no one condemn you? “
💞 The Scribes and the Pharisees brought a 👩 woman caught in adultery to Jesus so that they could accuse Jesus of doing something ❌wrong. But Jesus who is a man and also God knows the 💕 hearts of men and what is in store there.
💞 Jesus took time to reply to them as He knew about the sinfulness of the Scribes and the Pharisees . Since they persisted Jesus and wanted an answer from Him, Jesus stood up and told them, ” He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7)[ For according to the Law of Moses, a woman caught in adultery was stoned by the people)
Since they accepted that they had sinned, they all left without stoning the woman, starting from the older ones. The woman was left alone with Jesus. The woman realised that ‘ Jesus ‘ was no ordinary man as he had freed her from the 👐 hands of the Scribes and the Pharisees who had condemned her . When Jesus asked her about no one condemning her she replied, ” No one Lord .” And Jesus told her that He too would not condemn her either , but to sin no more. ( John 8:11)
💞 The woman accepted the forgiveness of Jesus and from then on began a new life. Lord Jesus, we Thank You for forgiving us innumerable times in our lives. Jesus We Love You . Help us Lord to live a life of grace and hold our hand and lead us to Your Kingdom. Amen.
