God Never Embarrasses Us

John chapter 8 verses 2-11 tell us a story of a woman that was dragged, half naked and afraid into the temple. She had been caught in the very act of adultery. The scribes and Pharisees came looking to Jesus to condemn her or to throw the first stone at her.

As the story unfolds, those that had brought her before Jesus slowly started to slip away. Jesus had stooped down and began writing on the dirty floor of the temple. As each accuser saw their sins written upon that dirty marbled floor of the temple, they saw that their lives were no better than the woman they had so roughly accused and brought before Jesus.

Jesus did not wish to create more resentment, hatred and embarrassment between the Pharisees and himself so He did not publicly associate the sin with the sinner, but they all knew in their heart what they had done. When they had all left, neither did Jesus accuse or condemn the woman, instead He said, “Go and sin no more.”

We serve a wonderful God, a God that loves us and will never cause us embarrassment. We often embarrass ourselves, but God will never be the source of embarrassment. When we come to Jesus, He says to us, “Go and sin no more.”

Even the prodigal son was not embarrassed by his Father rather he welcomed his son home with open arms.

So, it is with our heavenly Father, He welcomes us back, as if we had never left him as if we had never sinned. Doesn’t this sound like a God that loves us unconditionally? Yes, it truly does.
