from John 8:1-11
Often times we can know that God loves us and calls us to love those around us…to be LIKE JESUS to the world around us. We can know that God loves us so much that He gave His Son as a payment for our sin.
If we know those things, what keeps us from feeling like we are living the new life that Jesus promises? Why do we feel “stuck” somewhere between where we were and where God is calling us? For many of us, it can be boiled down to one word: FORGIVENESS.
Too many of us carry the stones of condemnation or anger or frustration or hurt around, hindering our walk in the freedom of grace that God offers us in Jesus. Maybe it’s our inability to forgive someone who has hurt us, or maybe it’s our inability to forgive ourselves…regardless, the invitation is to out those stones down and walk in freedom!
