GO AND SIN NO MORE
Saturday, November 28
"1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
John 8:11 "She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
In today’s devotional text, Jesus told that woman caught in adultery, “Go and sin no more.” That pronouncement is a power just as He pronounced on Peter. Peter said, “If you are the One bid me come on the water.” He said, “Come!” That word went with power that made Peter walk on top of the water. When the Lord says “Go and sin no more,” power follows that statement. Jesus has the power to sustain you and give you victory over sin. If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. His evil lifestyle is gone; old things are passed away; all things become new.
People that are still committing immorality and drinking alcohol are not yet born again. It does not matter whether you sing in the choir or you are made a leader. As long as you are still going to harlots, or are still in witchcraft; you are not born again. You must make up your mind to stop those things. You must go to God to forgive the past and ask Jesus for power to live the present and future life in righteousness.
You need Jesus to give you power for the future because you still have to contend against sin and Satan. Temptations and fleshly lusts will continue to wage war against the believer in Christ to lure you back into sin as a dog goes back to its own vomit. But for you to overcome, you need Jesus to put His power in you so that you will not sin again. If somebody says he is born again, it means he is not committing sin and past sin is gone. He is forgiven by God and presently, he has the power not to sin again.
So if you are putting this word into practice the Bibles says, the rain will descend, the wind will blow and the flood will come against you but you will stand. You are going to stand because you have the strength of God in your heart and in your life. That spiritual commitment puts into you an undefeatable energy and makes you an overcomer in life. Whatever may be the forces of decay, the forces of destruction, the forces that pull down, they will never be able to work in your life because you have built your life upon the rock and the rock is the totality of God’s word.
Thought for the day:
Jesus has the power to sustain you and give you victory over sin.
Song for the day:
Only Jesus can save, only Jesus can save, Alleluia!
