Woman in Adultery

I was placed in front of a large crowd. Knowing I was guilty, I cried as I bowed.

I was caught in the very act of fornication. I was labeled as an abomination.

My accusers had brought me to the Rabbi, but He was more than just an ordinary guy.

My very death was the price to pay. "The law says stone her, but Rabbi what do you say."

"He who is without sin, cast the first stone." Then they dropped their rocks and left me alone.

Each rock had left each hand. As they walked away, Jesus wrote in the sand.

As Jesus looked at me, this is what he had to say, " Tell me, where are thou accusers." They had all fled away.

I looked at Him and said, " Lord, I have none." I knew right then and there, that this was God's Son.

He looked at me and said, "Neither do I condemn you, but go and sin no more."

I turned my life around; My soul the Savior did restore.
