Passage: John 7:53– 8:11

Text: John 7:53-8:11
Title: Speaking Life

Jesus doesn't deny the truth, he applies the truth. 

Christianity says I am guilty but not condemned. 

Jesus doesn't condemn the woman because he's going to be condemned for her. 

Grace empowers obedience. 

Summary: Life giving words are rooted in grace and truth, rather than judgment and condemnation. 

1) Speak the gospel to yourself.
    - Four affirmations
       i) In Christ, there is nothing I can do to make God love me any more or less. 
       ii) God is all I need for everlasting joy. 
       iii) As God's been to me, so I will be to others. 
       iv) I'll measure God's compassion by the cross, His power, and His resurrection. 
2) Speak the gospel to others.
