Go and Sin No More! - Overcoming The Power of Sin - John 8:11

Jesus writes on the paving of the Temple while the woman hides her face









 


Jesus says "Go and sin no more!" - John 8:11

If Jesus says it, then it is possible! If the Bible has recorded it, then it can be done.

Jesus gave us the power to overcome sin.
Luke 10:19 - Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

  • You have power over sin
  • You have power over habits
  • You have power over satan
  • You have power over satan temptations.

Leave sin alone. Flee from sin.
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


Don't serve sin.
Romans 6:6 - Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.


Study Passage: John 8:3-11
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
