Sermon Title: Condemned!

Sermon Title: Condemned!

Introduction:

You think you already know because you read this FB post before, but here the text again for the first time.

John 8: 1-11 8 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

Sermon Text: John 8: 11 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.

Sermon Title: Cancelled Pt 1 Condemned!

Point 1. Caught. Vs 4, 8 4, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

          

         The law is clear. Lev 20: 10 10 “‘If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death. Duet 22: 22 22 If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.

Point 2. Consider. Vs 6, 8 6 …in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

Point 3. Correct.  Vs 7 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Jesus covered the woman and corrected the situation.

There is no condemnation, Romans 8: 1 8 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, REPEAT

Other people will cancel you but not Jesus. Others will say your life is over because of a mistake, a sin, an error in judgement, but not Jesus. Vs 11 Vs 11 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

Life Application:

1. Search yourself before you search for someone to cancel/condemn (life is best scene the lens of a mirror in a glass house)

2. Don’t participate in cancel culture

3. Be a person of second chances

Communion
