You and I were caught. No, it is not a scandal in the news perhaps but the shame and fear of consequences does something to our entire being.
Your mind and heart has a race and you cannot catch your breath. God catches people doing everything from stupid to evil things, everyday, all the time.
See the frowns of the religious, even so-called church people and the tenderness of Jesus?
Yes he is looking at you. he stands in between you and them.
The jury of the religious are powerless to hurt you despite your sins.
This is the day Jesus says with a smile of love, “I don’t condemn you, go and sin no more.”
Today, is the day Jesus showed you forgiveness of sin and freedom from sin.
He shows you mercy despite your crimes.
You did not ask, he just does it. Your spirit comes alive and your desires now have changed.
Jesus Christ shows you justice as well.
The justice of the cross.
He died in your place. He was glad to do it. He loved you as he did it. He loves you gladly now.
All the LAW and its law-men could do was justly bludgeon you with stones.
You see that smile? Jesus has spoken in his justice and righteousness and all is well.
You will never be condemned. The consequence and power of sin has been broken by Christ the Almighty Savior.
