NO more condemnation

today I watched a sermon video by Ps.Joseph Prince. his sermon was talking about "Grace & Favour".
He said one thing that striked me a lot, it was about the story in John 8:1-12. When there is condemnation, there will be more sin produced. but in verse 11, Jesus said to the adulteres woman, "Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more." Jesus takes all the condemnation toward our sin, so that we can sin no more. but nowadays, what most happens is the opposite ,"Don't sin, then I will not condemn you."

on the verse 6 in John chapter 8, it was said that "But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger,..". remember who wrote the ten commandments? it was God Himself, isn't? and who is Jesus? Jesus is God! When He wrote on the ground with His finger, He redeemed us from the law, He gives us GRACE.

When we are in Christ, there is NO MORE CONDEMNATION (Romans 8:1). we live under the grace, not under the law. How beautiful it is to live in Jesus :). However, this message doesn't ask you to keep sinning because there is no more condemnation, no! you'll know what I mean :)
