Still Standing In The Lord Jesus Christ

There are those who accuse. There are those who forgive. Which are you? Are you an accuser? Are you a forgiver? Forgiveness is far better than accusations. Those who forgive find peace. Those who accuse find hatred. There are many circumstances in my life that changed me...I choose forgiveness...I choose forgiveness every single time. What about you? There is one who is the perfect forgiver and His name is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle John records an account he witnessed of Jesus forgiving a woman being accused by the scribes and Pharisees of adultery. Even though the law condemns this particular sin Jesus forgives and commands the woman to sin no more. Its one of the most impactful acts the Lord Jesus Christ displayed to set us an example of how to forgive and to what length, depth, and breadth to forgive others.

John 8: 1-11

Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Dear Reader, please pray for my family, my wife, my boys, and me. Pray the Lord Jesus Christ would reconcile, restore, reunite, and redeem my family back together to the Glory, Honor, Praise, and Worship of Him. I have prayed for you. I pray you would receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal savior. There is only one time to be saved...Now! (2 Corinthians 6:2) Salvation is found in a person His name is the Lord Jesus Christ and He alone can save you from your sins!

We read in John 3:17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

The Lord Jesus Christ is not the accuser, he is the forgiver of sinners and the savior of the lost. Trust in His finished work on the Cross of Calvary and you will find forgiveness of your sins and find peace in Him for all eternity. There is nothing more important than Salvation, absolutely nothing! There is nothing better than Salvation, absolutely nothing! I would not trade it for anything in this world and I know you would never be sorry you trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior either.
