131. “Go now and leave your life of sin” (John 8:11).
Can she? This incredible story ends with the thought of destiny, but can she actually find a new path? The road she’s on hasn’t been one of a single choice. Likely years of hurt, unhealthy coping strategies, and immoral paths led this woman to her adulterous behavior. Now, in a single instant, Jesus expects her to embrace new choices? In a word, “YES!” That’s the power of a love that frees. The love of Christ brings more than forgiveness. It rewrites years of internal programming. It launches one toward the life they’d hoped for but never found. It breaks the chains we have constructed for ourselves. Love sets free. And with that freedom comes a new path to choose. God won’t choose it for us, but He will empower every step we choose to take in it’s fresh and untouched dirt. New love lets one choose new life and find the power to keep on walking.
