Jesus Unties The Knots

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

John 8:11

“"Go and sin no more!"”

Max's Message:

“We found this woman in bed with a man! The law says to stone her. What do you say Teacher?” In her despair she looks at the Teacher. His eyes don’t glare. “Don’t worry,” they whisper, “it’s okay.” Her feet were bare and muddy. Her heart ragged, torn as much by her own guilt as by the mob’s anger. So, with the tenderness only a father can have, Jesus begins to untie the knots and repair the holes.The woman’s accusers question, “Tell us teacher! What do you want us to do with her?” Jesus just raised His head and offered an invitation. “I guess if you’ve never made a mistake, then you have a right to stone this woman.”Silence. Then thud. . .thud. . .rocks fell to the ground. The crowd walked away. Jesus said, “Go, sin no more!” (John 8:11). Jesus saw her not as she was, but as she was intended to be.
