It is not whether or not others condemn us, but whether God condemns us that counts. He who does not believe in Jesus is “condemned already” (John 3:18), but there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1), are YOU? The crowd dropped their stones and withdrew, seeing they were sinners themselves. But Jesus, Who was without sin, let the woman go out of pure mercy.
Help us, O Lord, to remember that not to us but to You Man must answer for our actions and attitudes. We are not the judges, but You are The Just Judge of all Mankind. Our judgment fell on Christ, Your justice being satisfied in His sacrifice. We pray for those who do not know Your Essence that they may turn to You before it is too late to escape Your judgment, Amen.
