Sin, repentance and forgiveness: The prodigal son

Go and sin no more

Text: John 8: 11. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus did not come to condemn us because of our sin and unrighteousness, rather He came to save us, help us live above sin, and destroy all works of sin.
People might tag you a murderer, an adulterer, or even according to your weakness and habitual sin, but God calls you my own, He loves you and thinks good for you.
The death and resurrection of Christ from the dead, gave us victory over sin as we believe in Him, and constantly remain in Him.
No matter how many times you have fall, today God is saying stand, “Go and sin no more”.

Satan keeps us in guilt of our already forgiven mistake just to cause a separation between us and God.
But know that God’s ears are not small, neither are His hands short to save, a confessed sin receives a pardon immediately and most times a guidance on how to maintain your victory.
Focus more on what God is saying, and has to say about you rather than what people are saying about you.
If then God be our Father, would a father not forgive His own child and deny him fatherly love? Of course he will.
For God is more than a Father, even before we confess that sin, He already have seen the intent of our heart, He knows the enemy behind that sin and weakness, and He helps us to make intercession and live above sin.

Beloved, whosoever the son has made free, is free indeed.
You’re no longer a slave to sin.
Falling to sin, will not make you a slave to sin.
What God expects us is to stand, take back our place of authority, and make out ways right before Him.
As the adulteress in John 8 searched and couldn’t find her accusers, she was afraid that Jesus would pass His judgement, rather the Lord said to her and to us, ” Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more “.
Beloved rise up from that mistake, walk out freely with no fear of further accusations, and sin no more.

Shalom.
