Redeemed – saved from the bondage of sin
Put away the stone. We at times hear about people that have been caught in compromising situations. We hear about those that have been caught in adultery, murder, theft, drunkenness, lying, etc. We hear about it on the television, our phone conversation, internet and by personal interaction. Like the people in the bible that were ready to stone the woman that had been caught in adultery. They all had some type of sin hidden sin within themselves ready to cast a stone at her. Ready to make her suffer for her sins. Jesus stated that he without sin cast the first stone. They all had to drop or put away their stones. Our life is similar to the bible story. We look down on someone and even talk about them when their lives fall short of being perfect. God still loves that person and can still use them . He never cast away the woman that was caught in adultery. He told her to go and sin no more. Those were healing words. We kill many people's spirit by the words that comes out of our mouth sometimes. Remember David in the bible was a murderer and committed adultery. God still used him when he repented. If a person that did wrong asked God for forgiveness, then who are we to keep holding their past sins over their heads.
Put away the stone, for I have been Redeemed and Forgiven.
Romans 6:23“ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
