God Really is Love

Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” – John 8:10-11 (NIV)

Jesus never condemned sinners – He loved them. Do we? It was only the “religious” people that He spoke out against – OUCH! Like the Pharisees, Christians can get so distracted by dogma and “religion,” that we can forget that following Christ is first and foremost about love. We can’t measure ourselves against God’s perfection – there is no comparison – but we can weigh our motivation and actions on the scales of love. May we not come up “light!”
