Truth and Mercy meet

The story of the woman caught in the act of adultery is well known and taught widely. The underlying message is that no one is without sin. Including her accusers.

Jesus knows all the hearts of men and as such He was well able to tell she was caught in sin.  Yet the accusers could not cast the stones as per punishment of that time.

What brings me close to tears is the way He asks the woman, “where are your accusers?” She looks up and they are all gone. She  confesses with her mouth that they are gone.

So if they don’t condemn you, then I don’t condemn you. Go and sin no more!

John 8:1-11

There are times we have to speak to our situations and have them give us way to freedom and total healing.

Jesus knew she had sinned hence told her to sin no more. Truth and mercy met.

How can I not worship this amazing Redeemer?
