Jesus said to the woman being stoned for adultery , John 8:7, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Then in John 8:10-11, "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." Jesus says to me everyday, "go and sin no more."
As a parent when our children do something wrong, whatever it may be, I know in our house sometimes there was chastisement but all times there was the familiar saying, "try not to do that again." The most amazing thing was that with children, after the ordeal is over, it is over. The children are able to move on, like it never happened. I believe God does that for us. The only one who remembers our sins after we repent, is ourselves. Sometimes we just hang them around our neck, letting them weigh us down, just in case we should forget them. When Jesus shed his wonder working power, of His blood upon the cross, we were not only forgiven of ours sins but we became joint heirs with Him, we gained access to the most high God. The receiving of His deity and proclaiming that we are the blood bought children of the most high God is our testimony. Joint heirs with Jesus, think about that. Jesus shed His blood so that our names could be written in the lamb's book of life. So that we could have eternal life. Even when Jesus was hung on the cross, one of the thieves said in Luke 23: 42-43 "Then he said, "Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom." Jesus answered him, " I tell you the truth today you will be with me in paradise."
Blood bought child of the most high God, yeah, that is who I am.
