Neither do I

This morning the reading at Morning Prayer was from John’s gospel. I was struck by Jesus’ attitude – something this is most unlike some modern people and most unlike what most modern people think of Jesus.

Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, sir.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not sin again.”

John 8:10-11

“Neither do I condemn you.” Love people where they are at not where you want them to be. And let God sort everything out in the end. My relationship with Jesus expresses itself in obedience but obedience is not my relationship with Jesus.

I pray you have a Jesus-filled Sunday.
