No One, Sir

John 8:1-11
1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3The teachers of the law and the Pharisees (Romans 8:31 If God is for us, who can be against us?)brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery(Romans 8:33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?). 5In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women(Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemns?). Now what do you say?" 6They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." 8Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"

11"No one, sir," she said.
"Then neither do I condemn you,"(Romans 8:35 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?) Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."

Jesus is for you. When you believe and receive this...

-Who can be against you? Answer: No one, sir.
-Who can bring a charge against you? Answer: No one, sir.
-Who can condemn you? Answer: No one, sir.
-Who can seperate you from the love of Christ? Answer: No one, sir.
