A SECOND CHANCE

Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.” John 8:11 (NKJV)

After the Pharisees departed, Jesus looked at the woman caught in adultery, lying at His feet. That was not the first time she had appeared before Jesus. There was no doubt in her mind that He was a man of God. How exposed and embarrassed she must have felt, that is, until the Savior revealed His word of forgiveness and hope to her heart. Jesus did not condemn the woman but instead challenged her accusers to throw the first stone if one of them was found to be without sin.

Perhaps there is something in your life you wish you could erase. Just the thought of it brings feelings of condemnation and sorrow. Adultery was an act that the law declared punishable by stoning. Yet Jesus set the woman free.

He gave her a second chance, and that is what He gives you. If there is something you have done, know that when you bring it God in prayer seeking His forgiveness, it is forgiven. God will never bring the matter up again. His Son’s death at Calvary was sufficient payment for all your sins. Only almighty God can love you so much.
