John 8:1-11 Where Justice and Mercy Meet

What if we planned to show a recording of all your thoughts, words, and actions this week? Would you be excited about coming to church? Would you be terrified of what we would all see? Don’t worry, we aren’t doing that. But in John 8:1-11, we are going to see the law brought to bear on us all...publicly. Throughout church history, the story of the woman caught in adultery has captivated the heart of the church. It is a perfect picture of the law’s condemnation and the gospel’s gift of grace. Here we see both those who turn away from the conviction of God and those who are crushed by it. But only one in this story hears the words that are the greatest joy of the believer’s heart..."neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more."
