A question for the accusers

To Jesus they brought
this one they had caught
in breaking the law –
Christ came to restore
those sorry for sin,
so they could begin
a new life with Him,
empowered within.

For her they did not
have care, not a jot,
their aim was to trip
make Jesus to slip,
so they could detect
for law disrespect,
and undermine grace
that covers disgrace.

They all crept away,
for no-one could say
he’d never done wrong
through all his life long.
Hypocrisy, pride
can other sins hide.
The test had spun round –
and what had they found?

He didn’t condone,
nor did he condemn;
his mission to save,
and now can forgive
if guilt we admit
desiring to quit,
rebellion to leave;
repent and receive.

“If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
