Genesis 20-22, John 8
“She said, ‘No one, Lord’. And Jesus said, ‘Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more’.” (John 8:11) We were already condemned. Jesus came to bring freedom and restoration. But He doesn’t condone her sin. He forgives her … and tells her to go and sin no more. Father, thank you for redeeming and restoring me. Thank you for calling me from bondage to freedom.
I can’t help but imagine Sarah’s reaction if Abraham had mentioned his intentions about their son. Would she have willingly obeyed too or she would have questioned if Abraham had heard right. (Honestly I feel I would have been a stumbling block in my husband’s way) And I wonder how she felt after the incident…
“I AM” ❤️
God is our protector always -ellie
What incredible patience and long suffering our Lord displays in this dialogue. He makes clear statements of his deity, the humble purpose for which he has come, and the simple need to believe on him and the Father who has sent him. All the while seeing the evil and hatred in the hearts of those he is speaking to.
God is kind – maybe not at the exact time we want it – but with his perfect timing.
