Exposing Our Own Sin

Exposing Our Own Sin

John 8:7When 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.”

Confident Condemnation

The Pharisees eagerly condemned the adulterous woman, demanding her execution.

They arrogantly assumed the role of judge, blind to their own guilt.

The Mirror Turns Inward

Jesus’ response exposed their hypocrisy. Were they without sin themselves?

None could claim a spotless record. They recoiled as the mirror turned inward.

Revealing Self-Righteous Hearts

It’s easy to denounce others while excusing our own subtle sins. But Jesus’ words reveal self-focused hearts.

We all fall desperately short of God’s standard.

Examining Ourselves First

As sinners saved by grace, we must remove planks from our eyes before addressing specks in another.

Merciful truth exposes and heals.
