Jesus' Forgiving Grace

The scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman caught in adultery (John 8:3).
The crowd called for her condemnation.
Jesus said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 

Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. No one condemned the guilty woman!

Jesus said to the guilty woman, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more".
Then in John 8:12 Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

When we stumble and fall, and have our most embarassing moments, let us be reminded of 3 things:
(1) the forgiving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ
(2) The call to sin no more
(3) The call to have the light of life, the call to enjoy His forgiving grace.
