Point To Cross

Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” – John 8:10-11 (NIV).

This woman, who had been caught in the very act of adultery, didn’t receive condemnation from Jesus.  And this was before Jesus died.

Jesus has been judged for all our sins–past, present and future.  Our sins have been paid for.  Therefore there is no need for us to live under condemnation.  Now, we can live, just like the adulteress woman, without condemnation.

Next time the devil tries to bring up your past sins, you point him to the Cross where Jesus paid for all your sins.

Jesus shed His blood so that you might be in right-standing with God through Him (II Corinthians 5:21).  When we continue to live under condemnation, we are not accepting Jesus’ free gift in full.

    Before and during Christmas I have been studying the Cross and something that has really stood out to me is that when we refuse or fail to receive all of the blessings of the cross we truly are “rendering it powerless.”

    The Cross is incredibly power. On the Cross Christ paid the ransom in full for our souls and purchased ALL tht we need.
