Neither do I condemn you

by Jean-Louis Coraboeuf

"And Jesus said to her: Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more" (John 8:11).

Grace does not come through the Law, but from the very heart of God; and it does not depend on our actions whether good or bad, as this passage about the adulterous woman demonstrates. While the Law and men condemn, grace is fully shown by the Son of God, for Jesus came to make that known (John 1:17).

In this passage from the Scriptures, in the face of the manifestation of grace, all the accusers leave one after another, and it is the same for us; if we dwell in grace, our accusers will leave us, for the law does not loves Grace. And we will become dispensers of grace when, like Jesus, we do the will of our Father.
