I have read this Scripture many times and others like it. Jesus said many times, “Go and Sin No More!”
But let us start with some background for those of you who haven’t read the Bible 30-plus times…like me.
Not only that…but I have “studied” it…like thought about it…asking what does this mean?
Well, I got some intuition about it.
The part I am talking about was when a woman was caught in adultery, and the religious leaders were about to stone her…like kill her by throwing stones at her.
As the Law said!
What a way to die…and whoever devised that punishment is…what…insane!
But anyway, the religious leaders asked Jesus what they should do.
He bent down, started writing in the dirt, and said,
“Let him who is without sin, Throw the First Stone!
He continued writing in the dirt…I wonder what he was writing?
Maybe all their sins….who knows…doesn’t say…but…
One by one they leave, because they feel guilty.
Finally there are only Jesus and the “guilty” women.
He says to her “Who is left to condemn you?
She says, “NO one!”
He then says, “Neither do I…
Go and Sin NO More!”
What does this all mean?
First of all, we condemn ourselves…
Second, God does not condemn us…
So in his Eyes, we are Not Guilty!!!
Think about that..WE are Not Guilty!
Third, we are supposed to “Go and Sin No More!!!”
That means we can live a “Sinless Life!!!”
Wow…how does that work?
I think it has to do with the Big Picture.
It’s like it all works out…and we should live as if IT does work out…
Then we really don’t live under condemnation and guilt.
That’s the part that matters.
It goes back to the “Love Yourself then Love Your Neighbor” post I wrote a while back…
So if you want to change your perspective on guilt and fear, and learn How To Love Yourself on Your Journey to Finding Your Dream…
