You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there." - John 8:9

The teachers of the Law and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus. They asked whether she could be stoned to death according to the Law given by Moses. Their motive was to trap Jesus and find a basis for accusing Him.

Jesus said to them that any one of them who has no sin can be the first to throw a stone at her. Bible clearly says that those who heard what Jesus said began to go away one at a time and only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 

In Matthew 23:27, Jesus Says, Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean."

In Matthew 23, Jesus condemns the hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees. He openly called them hypocrites, blind guides, blind fools and so on. It’s true that Pharisees and the teachers of the Law lived a life filled with hypocrisy. They used to show off themselves as holy ones.

That same group of teachers of the Law and Pharisees went away obeying Jesus when they heard Him saying, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.

They brought her to Jesus when He was in the temple courts. There were so many people around Him. They came to trap Jesus and accuse Him. Instead of standing there showing off themselves as the ones who has no sin and stone that woman disobeying Jesus, they went away without speaking anything accepting that they are also sinners. 

Though they are hypocrites, they obeyed Jesus on that time. That paved a way for Jesus to save and forgive the woman caught in adultery. Their obedience saved a life of a woman.

If those so called hypocrites obey Jesus in such a way accepting their sins in public, how much more we have to obey Jesus Christ when He command us to obey! 

My dear young friends, obey Jesus in everything you do. When He ask you not to stone anyone by your words or deeds, obey Him and don’t throw the stone. When He ask you to help someone, help them without asking Him anything further. If you obey Jesus in everything you do, He will be happy about your life and He will bless you. Through you nations will be blessed.
