Throw the first stone…

LISTEN TO TODAY’S MESSAGE

John 8:7: When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Jesus was teaching in the temple courts when He made this statement. A group of teachers of the law and Pharisees had just dragged a woman caught in adultery before Him and challenged, “In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” (verse 5). Because they considered Jesus a threat to their authority, the question was “a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him” (verse 6)—and getting rid of Him.

When Jesus replied, “Let any one of you who is without sin . . .” not one of the woman’s accusers could bring themselves to pick up a stone. One by one, they walked away.

So what can we bring into our journey today? It’s so easy to look at other people’s lives and what they are not doing right and say how you would do things, right? I remember thinking ‘when I have kids I will do things differently’. Well, many things, yes I did do differently, but in a bigger perspective, some of those things I may have looked at with judgmental eyes, I have seen where I have fallen short of the glory of God, just like Romans 3:23 says. If Jesus showed this woman, and in essence you and I, grace and hope (John 3:16; 8:10-11) How can we not do the same for others? A couple of days ago, we talked about loving our neighbors as ourself. I think about this too, and if we can see that we are not perfect, how can we not offer that grace to others?

So today’s message, thinking of your journey, what can you do ‘just for today’ to shift some subtle and small change in your own life? Where can you apply today’s verse and add more light in your life and in your day? Know that God loves you through your flaws and all, from the top of your head to your toes. Go out today and make a positive impact on your life and the lives around you!
