John 8:7

John 8:7

The person who is most critical of the faults, failings and sins of others is often guilty of the self-same faults, failings and sins in their own lives. 'When you point your finger of accusation at another, remember you have three fingers of accusation pointing right back at yourself,' as the old saying goes. How often the person who is severely judging his fellowman is the hypocrite who flatters himself of his own uprightness.

John 8:9

John 8:9

The woman caught in adultery had certainly sinned, and judgement needed to be meted out.. but the evil schemes of the Jewish leadership, who were using the undeniable guilt of this adulteress to trap the Lord Jesus, was an underhand plot to either: 1) accuse Him of disregarding sin by demonstrating His contempt for the God-given Law of Moses.. or 2) not living up to His claims of being a friend of sinners and their merciful Saviour.

Christ is the image of the invisible God. He is God the Son, Who sheds the light of the Father to the far flung corners of the universe, the shining Light that alone enlightens the darkened soul of man.

John 8:23

John 8:23

From the start of Christ's ministry, the scribes and Pharisees resented His unorthodox teaching and heavenly testimony, which laid claims to His being the incarnate Son of God, Who came to earth from heaven as the anointed Messiah of Israel.

These religious bigots tried to explain away Christ's read more...

John 8:24

John 8:24

The Christian dies in the Lord because he has been born again and given the life of Christ and so he lives his life in the Lord. The power of sin is severed in the life of the Christian. The believer will therefore die in Christ.

The unbeliever dies in his sins because he is born dead in trespasses and sins and continues to live his life in sin. The power of sin enslaves the unbeliever, making him a slave to sin. The unbeliever read more...

All who received the Lord Jesus as the Word of God made flesh, are given the right to become children of God, even to those that believe on His name – and certain Jews believed in Him and so Jesus explained to these believers, if you abide in My word, you are truly My disciples. He continued to explain that those who chose to abide in His word would know the truth and the truth would set them free.

John 8:34

Jesus is incarnate Truth and when He said to His followers: 'truly, truly I say to you...' we should pin back our ears and pay special attention to what He has to say: Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.

John 8:58

One of the fundamentals of our faith in that Lord Jesus Christ is fully God in every way and fully equal with the Father. Many people consider that Jesus never claimed to be God or professed equality with the Father – and yet when the Lord Jesus declared, before Abraham was, I AM… He was making the most blatant and incontrovertible declaration of His Deity – claiming equal status with YHWH of the old testament – the God of Abraham, Isaac and read more...
