Topic: The Mess of Sin and the Mercy of Jesus
[Seeds of Destiny 2 April 2019 Devotional]
Sin is the reason for the erosion of dignity and destiny. Many have lost their dignity on the altar of iniquity in this world and in eternity. But Jesus Christ brought salvation in the place of condemnation; He brought mercy and purity in the place of mess and impurity; He brought life in the place of death. He brought grace to assist us to keep the Word of God.

SCRIPTURE: When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. John 8:10-11

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sin is the reason for the erosion of dignity and destiny.

Our anchor Scripture tells a story of a woman who was caught in a terrible mess, the sin of adultery. The sin was so serious that it attracted death by stoning based on the Law of Moses. So, the woman was to be stoned to death. The Jews and the Scribes brought her to Jesus to ask if the law should be applied on her or not. And by so doing, they were also trying to trap Jesus so as to find something to use against Him.

But Jesus had compassion on the woman and saved her from being destroyed without giving the Jews any ground for accusing Him of breaking the Law of Moses. You see, but for the mercy of Jesus the woman would have perished in the mess of her sin.

The lesson from this passage is: sin is a tragedy; sin brings shame and disgrace. Sin is the reason for the erosion of dignity and destiny. Many have lost their dignity on the altar of iniquity in this world and in eternity. But Jesus Christ brought salvation in the place of condemnation; He brought mercy and purity in the place of mess and impurity; He brought life in the place of death. He brought grace to assist us to keep the Word of God.

Now, what is the implication of the compassion of Jesus?

1. Advocacy

Jesus represented the woman as her advocate. He is the Voice of the voiceless; He is still pleading our case daily.

2. Reversal Of A Negative Verdict

Jesus reversed the verdict of rejection, reproach and condemnation that came upon the woman as a result of sin.
