πŸ‘‘ Go, And Sin No More

The self-righteous Pharisees had brought a fallen woman to Jesus and, β€œwhen they had set her in the midst”, they began to accuse her, saying: β€œNow Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest Thou?” (John 8:5).

They were using this fallen woman to embarrass the Lord into agreeing that this woman should be stoned, or else leaving Himself open to a charge of repudiating Moses’ Law.

At first He made β€œas though He heard them not”, but, when they continued asking, they got what they asked for! Simply answering: β€œHe that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her”, the Lord turned away again to let that sentence do its work. They had β€œset her in the midst”. Now He had set them in the midst and, β€œbeing convicted by their own conscience”, they β€œwent out one by one” (John 8:9).

And there stood the woman alone before Him: a great sinner and a great Saviour. Since none of the Pharisees had dared to cast a stone at her, the Lord said: β€œNeither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” (John 8:11).

Thus the Lord graciously forgave the sinner-woman, yet without ignoring the demand of the Law. He had not denied that the woman deserved punishment. He had only pointed out that the Pharisees themselves were sinners; that they, like she, needed aΒ Saviour.

Thank God! Since β€œChrist died for our sins”, God can justly forgive us β€” and He will, IF we but acknowledge our sin and our need of a Saviour, and do not join the self-righteous who keep β€œgoing about to establish their own righteousness” (Rom. 10:3).

β€œThis is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to saveΒ SINNERS…” (I Tim. 1:15). God is very gracious to those who will acknowledge their sin and their need: β€œFor the same Lord over all is RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.” source
