Grace and new beginnings

Do you ever notice yourself being critical of other people? I think we’ve all done it at one time or another.

Maybe it’s the way someone dresses, or the language they use, or their lifestyle. It isn’t hard for us to be a bit judgmental at times. Jesus found himself in a situation where a crowd of people wanted to stone a woman for making bad choices. Under the Law this was a normal procedure.

However, Jesus was about to go to the cross and usher in grace, and fulfill the Law. This particular day Jesus was going to give an angry mob a taste of what that grace would be like. It all started with Jesus teaching a crowd of his followers in the temple courts.

All of a sudden the teachers of the Law and the Pharisees brought a woman before him who was 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 ...

God created Moses for a specific purpose, to free God’s people, Israel, from slavery in Egypt and take them into the Promised Land. Jesus was sent to earth to free God’s people from slavery to the world, and God’s plan for Paul was to take that message about Jesus to the Gentiles.

Just four people, out of millions through-out history God chose for a specific purpose. God uses people today just as he used Moses, Paul or anyone else in history.

We tend to struggle with the idea of God having a purpose for us today, but God hasn’t changed. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, (Hebrews 13:8).

If you Love God, and have given your life ...
