“Go, and sin no more.”
Jesus said this kind if thing a lot. Yes, He forgives sins. But it’s not because those sins are OK. He forgives because He loves us, and because His sacrifice paid the price.
When we come to Jesus for forgiveness, it needs to be with an attitude of repentance; a willingness to turn from our sins and follow Him. The good news is, as with the woman in this story, Jesus will forgive. He will not condemn. He will say, “Go, and sin no more.”
May we live today in light of this grace, turning away from sin and with thanksgiving following Jesus.
