Grace and Truth Personified

John 7:53 – 8:11

The moral dilemma – John 7:53 – 8:7a

  • Test # 1 – Jesus commitment to the law
  • Test #2 – Jesus commitment to love and compassion
    • Jesus is the perfect balance of grace and truth.

Application:  How can you and I display the balance of grace and truth in all situations?

The measured response – John 8:7b – 9

  • Their sins revealed
  • Their time to ponder their sin and not judge

Application: We lose every time if we compare our sins to others.

The mark of compassion and forgiveness – 8:10 – 11

  • No one to accuse you
  • I accept you and remove your shame
  • Leave your life of sin

Application: Are our lives marked with compassion and forgiveness?

Key Thought: We can boldly speak and live for Christ because our guilt and shame are gone!!
