Stone Throwers - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole


Bible Verses: John 8:3-11

"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.

'Teacher,' they said to Jesus, 'this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?'

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. 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!' Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

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. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, 'Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?'

'No, Lord,' she said.

And Jesus said, 'Neither do I. Go and sin no more.'”

Reflect and Respond:

What do you appreciate about how Jesus handled this situation? Did He turn a blind eye to sin? Did He condemn anyone?


Father, please help me see others as You see them, and to interact with them in a Christ-like manner, especially when they fall to sin. I pray that I would be a humble witness to them of Your love and your power for change. Amen.

Amen thank you Jesus for reminding me of how forgiving and you are and helping me to let go of hurt and anger and bring me out into the light seeing my self in the mirror.
