Jesus straightened up and asked he, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Taken from the book of John Chapter 8 verses 10-11
It is amazing how the grandest of oaks comes from the smallest of acorns. Of the many acorns that an oak tree produces, a relatively small number of them avoid being trampled underfoot or eaten by squirrels so that they also can go on to grow to maturity. The challenge now is that you nurture the seed of faith now within you so that it will grow to its full maturity within your spirit.
The mystery of the cross is such that God obviously gets the raw end of the deal. He himself assumes the penalty of your sins, past, present and future. To truly understand this transaction however is to fill you with a sense of mission wherein out of a sense of gratitude you strive to give others the same grace that you are in the process of receiving.
Favor unmerited and undeserved, freely given lovingly to all you meet are the hallmarks of a heart touched by the mystery of the cross. Allow this forgiveness to be first given to you and like ripples in a pond, extend from you to all you meet. This is the inner fountain that will nourish not only you but rather all who come to be fed in the sanctuary of your presence.
