He Chose Mercy

Because Jesus is without sin and is perfectly holy.....He had every absolute moral authoritative right to stone the woman the Pharisees brought to him. None of them were without sin. And yet the ONLY one who had both the authority to condemn her and the mercy to pardon her chose mercy.
He dismissed her accusers until He was the only one left. In that moment....instead of judgment He chose mercy. When the judge and jury both had her condemned...the only one who had the RIGHT to accuse her, in His perfect and unexplainable grace gave her LIFE instead. That's scandalous! and a kind of love I will never understand. 
............It's what we DO with that pardon, grace, and mercy that makes all the difference in eternity. 
He's a God of second chances.
