"Isn't It The Point?"

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God!   Romans 3:23

"Teacher, this woman was caught in ..... So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first." And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman was standing in the midst. When Jesus 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." John 8:4-11

Now I know this is not the typical 'Resurrection Sunday' message but it seems to me it is kinda the point, isn't it?  After all isn't it why ... He made Himself of no reputation, took on the form of a servant, and came in the likeness of men? Isn't it why ...He being found in appearance as a man, humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:6-8

Isn't it why He, as the last Adam, became a life-giving spirit? 1 Corinthians 15:45

Isn't it why He swallowed death and its sting up in victory?  1 Corinthians 15:54-55

What about those moments on the cross when the Father turned away and He cried, "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me?"  and when He said, "It is finished," and paid in full our debt, our sins? For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him 2 Corithians 5:21

Isn't the point of His death and resurrection so that we can have our moment when we look Him in the eyes and hear Him say, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." John 8:11

God Bless!!!
