Walking Away From Sin

 

Read John 8:1-11

 

There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.   – Romans 8:1-2 (NIV)

 

The woman whom the Pharisees dragged before Jesus had been caught in the act of adultery.  The religious authorities wanted to stone her in accordance with the law.  They thought they could trap Jesus by asking what he thought was the appropriate punishment for her.  Instead of answering, he confronted their hypocrisy:  “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”  When no one came forward, Jesus shocked them by giving the woman – and all of us – the answer needed to break free from sin:  “Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now and leave your life of sin’” (John 8:1-11).

 

I can relate to the woman in John 8:1-11.  I remember the hopeless feeling of being trapped in an ongoing sin in my life.  My sinful behavior had a stranglehold on me, and I couldn’t see a way out.  When I realized that Jesus wanted to save me from my sin, I found the freedom I had longed for.

 

Jesus was not sent into this world to condemn us.  Condemnation has no power to change our lives.  Only when we believe and accept the forgiving grace of God and the fresh start God gives us each day can we leave our lives of sin.  When we embrace the truth of God’s love, our lives will never be the same.
