John 8:1-11 (NLT)

8 Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2 but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. 3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.

As Jesus was TEACHING, immediately the enemy starts TROUBLE.

But it’s in trouble that God shows his plan for RESTORATION of his FAMILY to the world.

4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?” 6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

Let’s set the scene:
- A group of religious teachers and leaders (Pharisees) brought a woman caught in sexual sin to Jesus.
- By the law, she could have been stoned to death. Every single one of these leaders knew the Mosaic Law to the letter.
- If they knew the law, why were they asking Jesus for his opinion?

The enemy will set a TRAP for those trying to bring restoration to the family.

Jesus answered let the one without sin first cast a stone. He didn’t say no one could throw a stone, he said the one without sin cast the VERY FIRST SHOT. The only person eligible to answer his statement was HIMSELF.

9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” 11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

God has both the authority to CONDEMN you and to SAVE  you. 

Three truths about reconciliation of sin through the power of the blood of Jesus:

1. He turns EXILES into family. Why was this woman exiled?
a. She was unclean
b. She was caught
c. She was ashamed
d. She was guilty
e. Sin will leave you all of those things but the Savior of the world has redeemed you from this sin!

2. He turns BROKEN into brothers and sisters.
a. “It has been observed that there is no sin so great that God will not forgive, but there is no sin so small that it does not need to be forgiven. The Old and New Testaments center on the theme of redemption and forgiveness, stressing the human condition as one of alienation and moral guilt…Through God’s mighty and loving act of redemption on the cross of Christ, he can offer the gracious act of forgiveness without compromising the perfection of his justice and character…and secure our relationship as true members of God’s family…” – Conformed to His Image, Kenneth Boa, pp. 49.
b. “Why has the church in America become so segregated? Because we have let tribalism, ethnocentrism, individualism, consumerism, racism and classism create boundaries in God’s people. The Bible calls this sin.” – Derwin Gray, HD Leader, pp. 56-57
c. There is a new family created with the redemption of Christ Jesus – one held together as brothers and sisters and joint heirs through the work of Jesus!

3. He turns HOPELESSNESS into healing.
a. This woman had no lawful right to be saved.
b. In the midst of her fear, he restored her faith.

God sent not his Son into the world to judge the world, but to save the world through Him. – John 3:17
