The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?"
I love this story in the Bible. It is an intriguing story of a woman caught in the act of sin and redeemed through Jesus' grace. I am sure the woman brought to Jesus was terrified. Her life was flashing before her eyes because she knew the custom of the times--anyone caught in the act of adultery was stoned to death. A pretty scary thought, right?! Jesus saw the ugliness of her sin, but saw one of His beautiful princesses before Him. He loved this woman just like He loves you and me. Jesus forgave her--He showed her grace.
We will mess up in this life. There is real pain in this world. But in the midst of the pain and sin, there is real hope in Jesus Christ. Bask in His grace today.
