John 8:10-11, "When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you? She said, "No one, Lord."And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."
The story of the adulteress and Jesus is a powerful interaction that we should apply in our personal encounters on our daily walk of faith. The Scribes and Pharisees brought the young woman to Jesus after catching her in the very act of her sin and they used her sin as a means of testing Jesus, it wasn't about the woman primarily. The Bible says, they brought up the law of Moses so that they would have something to accuse Jesus of-not necessarily the woman. When folks come at you, be wise and understand that you are only the vessel and that they are attacking the Christ in you-not you and God will handle them accordingly. When people come at you with something they feel doesn't fit their protocol or standards, don't say a mumbling word and allow Jesus to come down to their level to straighten them out, but more importantly bring em' out! The Bible says, Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger as though He didn't hear them. Jesus ain't thinking about nor listening to the foolishness people have to say about you and neither should you. The adulteress was wrong, but it wasn't for man to judge her, if Jesus finds fault with you, He will address you privately, men do things in public. Jesus is a gentlemen and He doesn't operate in foolishness! When Jesus got up, her haters went down! Nobody was there but Him and the woman and He dealt with her one on one. The same rule and lesson is applicable in our lives, when we have given our sins to Jesus, leave them there and go forward with expectation of not repeating the same mistakes. You have nothing to prove to man, Jesus told her to go and sin no more, that meant she didn't have to go and explain herself to anybody, she simply needed to get it together. Always remember you may not have it all together, but all things work together for the good of them who are called according to His Purpose! Be Blessed and encouraged!
