John 8:10 Living Bible (TLB)

10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to her, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”

 

There are so many things in our past that brings accusation against us, if we allow it to condemn us. Often its us that brings accusation against us and other times we allow others judgment of us define us or condemn us. Are you still allowing the sins you did before Jesus found you lost in your wilderness. Are you still walking in the wilderness of your mind, lost in your past, even though Jesus saved you from your sins? A lot of Christians are yet reliving and rehashing up their past like they are still walking in their past. Hey Man, Hey Woman , “Where are your accusers?” You aren’t the same old you, the one that was in sin. Why do you insist on carrying or lugging around those burdens of yesterday years? The woman in John 8:10 was an adulterer, yet Jesus showed mercy on her, even when her accusers sought to condemn her and came to Jesus wanting Him to condemn her too. Yet Jesus told her accusers if they are without sin cast the first stone. My question to you are you throwing stones at yourself? Are you your accuser? Are the sins of your past keep accusing you and you are accepting the blame? Are you allowing the shame of what happen to you as a child paint a vivid picture of how you see yourself today?  Why are you accepting the blame, Jesus paid the penalty for your sins and shame? Stop condemning yourself and start celebrating the liberty from sin and from your past. Jesus told that woman go sin no more. If your accusers are someone other than you how can they accuse and condemn you they aren’t sinless either. Do you still let the sins of your past label you today? Instead of you professing that you are a child of God, are you still saying to yourself, ” I AM DAMAGED GOODS.”  How do you see yourself? Do you see an ADULETRER, MURDERER, LIER, THIEF, FORNICATIOR, HOMOSEXUAL, IDOLTRY, OR ANY OTHER  SINS OR ISSUES when you look in the mirror at yourself? Your soul is crying out silences my accuser(s) so that I can be who God says I am and be free of my past. Jesus silenced your accuser when He saved you, when you had met Him in your pit experience. Jesus said, He came to save the lost, He came to give you a new name and new identity. Today God is silencing your accuser! Walk in liberty where Christ Jesus has set you free! If you repented and living your life everyday consecrated unto Jesus why do you still label yourself by your past? Why do you still see yourself as, “DAMAGED GOODS?”

Galatians 5:1 New International Version (NIV)

5 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

 

2 Corinthians 5:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

John 8:8-12 The Message (MSG)

6-8 Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger in the dirt. They kept at him, badgering him. He straightened up and said, “The sinless one among you, go first: Throw the stone.” Bending down again, he wrote some more in the dirt.

9-10 Hearing that, they walked away, one after another, beginning with the oldest. The woman was left alone. Jesus stood up and spoke to her. “Woman, where are they? Does no one condemn you?”

11 “No one, Master.”

“Neither do I,” said Jesus. “Go on your way. From now on, don’t sin.”
