“I am the most wretched and vile and disgusting creature on earth,” the woman thought to herself as she sought relief from her pain in the only way she knew how. “I need and crave human sexual contact to take the pain away for a moment,” was her thought just before the angel allowed her to fall to the ground so Jesus could stoop down next to her and then,
“Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” – John 8:10-11
The fact that sex is a temporary pain reliever for many should not be a big surprise, it always has been. In fact the reason Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed was that the people there had basically gone crazy with this pain reliever (See Romans 1).
Food is another great temporary pain reliever and one that America has taken to new heights. Porno is my pain reliever of choice but there are a million pain relievers I suppose, BUT only One pain eliminator –
Let me explain how He eliminates your pain if you let Him because this is what the religious miss – the religious basically just take religion as another pain reliever!
When Jesus stooped down to pick up my worthless being, it was years after I had walked down a church aisle and said a prayer that someone told me to repeat. The baptismal waters had long been dried off my evil flesh and I could quote more verses than most religious children will ever memorize.
You see up to the point that someone shared Grace with me, I Never knew the Power of Christ – Only the power of my effort!
This is the single most important message of my life so PLEASE don’t miss it!
When you meet Jesus, the reason Everything changes is because the law has “Finished” its job! “The law is good” and for the one trying to figure out what they need – its Perfect! But I am imperfect – enter Jesus! Some translations of the above text say, “Go and sin no more” but either way we have to ask ourselves this – did Jesus give an impossible and in fact sadistic command OR does Everything become New when we meet Him and understand His Grace?
