Near the end of the feast of days, a woman is brought to Jesus by the ruling authorities. These authorities wanted justice. Justice at the highest cost.
She had committed a sin that required the ultimate payment, her life. An act that could only be satisfied with the offender giving his/her life in payment!
Question, where do you fit into this story, Are you the women in need of forgiveness? The self-righteous condemners or one in the crowd looking on?
The greatest lesson we learn from this story is about: Fiveness. Let’s examine what we can learn about FORGIVENESS together!
I. It Is Not Based On Our Innocence (1-4a)
II. It Is Not Limited By The Severity Of Our Sin (4b)
III. It Does Not Overlook The Requirements Of The Law (5a)
IV. It Is The Only Thing That Stands Between Us & Death (5b)
V. Available Only Because There Is No One Qualified To Forgive (6-9)
VI. It Proves The Mission Of Our Lord (10-12)
Conclusion: He still forgives today!
