“So when they continued asking Him, He stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
As believers in Jesus, we are allowed to spread the good news about the meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The door is now open, every person is invited and the table is set. Jesus has made everything ready for every human being, so that we can be reconciled to God.
To be able to walk in life in fellowship with God surpasses everything else. This is the meaning of life, to know God. It is good news that we can be loved by God. We can be children of the world’s best Daddy, God in heaven. He wants to help us in all areas of life. Nothing is too small or too complicated for God. All this is possible because Jesus died on the cross for us and rose on the third day from the dead. The sin that separates man from God can one now be freed from, by believing in Jesus.
When Jesus sent out His disciples to preach, they preached the gospel, the good news. They did not have stones with them to throw at people who lived wrong. They did not even have an attitude of being stone throwers. The fact is that even if one do not throw physical stones, one can throw stones through one´s attitude and choice of words.
If one have such an attitude, then Jesus wants to loose one, by showing that He did not throw stones at anyone. Jesus was without sin, faultless and perfect, but He did not emphasize the problems of the people but the solution. Let’s do the same.
“… Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” John 1:29
God bless you.
