100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #78 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE: John 8:1-11: “Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 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? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”
The story of the woman caught in adultery is a very familiar story to most of us. Normally, however, when we look at this story we focus on the woman’s self-righteous accusers and their hypocrisy. Today, I will not be focusing on this story from that persepctive. Rather, I want us to focus on the woman and the beautiful message of salvation that this story holds for each of us.
1. First of all, I want you to notice that the woman was caught in her sin.
2. Secondly, notice that this woman was condemned by the law.
3. Thirdly, this woman is cleared by the Saviour.
