“Hope In The Savior” by Kirk Hunt
They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
John 8:4-5 KJV
To the Pharisees, she was disposable. A human life of no worth or consequence. Her life and soul were a trifle to be cast away at their whim. Cold and callous hearts sought to destroy two lives with their charges.
To Jesus, she was precious. He had come specifically to save her. Her life and soul were so valuable to Him that he surrendered his place in eternity to preserve her.
Make no mistake, her sin and guilt were a garish and offensive spectacle before Him. Still, in the very same moment, His love for her exceeded all boundaries and measures. He responded to her situation with loving grace and tender mercy.
Then, as now, Jesus loves sinners just like you and I. His love for you exceeds all boundaries and measures. Your accusers want to hurl stones and condemnation. Your Savior wants to lavish you with grace and mercy.
He loves you as you are. Right where you are. Re-enthroned in eternity, Jesus waits specifically for you. All you have to lose are your guilt and sin.
Think: God loves sinners. Even me.
Pray: “Lord, lead me to restoration in You.”
