My husband had gone off for some days, what a relief! I couldn’t help but think of the coming night, when I would be in the hands of the other man who truly made me feel warm. My husband was a nice man, but he had lost his passion and desire for me and for love somewhere along the line. He was now concerned about money for the home, clothes for the kids, what he would eat, all these just made him dry. Before we were married, he would sing to me, play with my hair, and just be with me. We never thought of money or clothes. Now this other man was filling all the empty spaces that my husband left, I knew it was wrong, but I just kept going.
It was late and very dark, so I got dressed up, covered my hair and my face and set off, to meet my love. I sneaked into his room a few minutes past midnight and my love way there to meet me. He opened the door and embraced me, so passionately, then we lay on the bed, I could smell his sweet fragrance, his breadth, and all thus while we lay together he would whisper sweet words to me.
Then suddenly, we heard footsteps hurrying towards the door. My heart sank. I began to shiver and sweat begun dripping down my face! Then there were heavy knocks on the door, I leaped out of bed. Before we could have time enough to put on our clothes, the people were inside the room! I was caught red-handed in adultery!!
I was doomed! I knew they were going to stone me to death. They pulled me out of the bed, and dragged me out of the room. One of the men grabbed my hair and I screamed in agony, another held the little piece of clothing I had left on me and pulled me along also! I knew it was my end. It was when they launched me outside that I notice it was dawn. As they pulled me out into the streets, almost everyone came to catch a glimpse of the woman caught in adultery. They pulled me through the streets and I was covered in shame. Then they brought me and asked him what should be done to me. My heart sank, because I knew it wouldn’t be anything less than death, I have seen it being done to many women. I watched the man as he bowed just writing on the floor. The whole place was silent. Everyone waited for an answer. He just kept writing.
Then he said, “he who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first”. In a twinkle of an eye, they had all left. I was amazed! Then he stood up and lifted his eyes towards me. I could see love in his eyes, forgiveness in his eyes. Then he said to me “woman, where are all those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” “No one Lord” I replied. Then he said once more “Neither do I condemn you: go and sin no more.”
So I went, and never repeated my sins. That was the day I met the man who saved my life, and saved my soul from the pits of hell. I later heard that He has been crucified on the cross, and has extended the forgiveness he gave to me to the whole world through his blood. You can read about my story in John 8:1-11.
No matter how sinful you are, he can cleanse you. This man never condemns, He never accuses, and He only forgives. His name is Jesus. Will you run to Him? If you will, then say these words out loud.
“THANK YOU FOR DYING ON THE CROSS FOR ME”
“I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH THAT YOU ARE LORD”
“AND BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT GOD RAISED YOU FROM THE DEAD”
“COME INTO MY HEART TODAY LORD”
“AND BE THE LORD OF MY LIFE”
“IN JESUS NAME I HAVE PRAYED”
That’s all it takes. Hurray!! You are born again! But there are many steps to take after here in order to know Jesus fully. Do get in touch with any of us, and we will gladly hold your hand as we both walk through this life with Jesus.
Amen and GOD BLESS YOU!
