The Good Seed - Friday, May 8, 2020
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

Jesus spoke … saying, I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.
John 8:12

“That is the Lord I want to follow!”
“Is it possible to truly know God? And is the Creator really interested in me?” These questions occupied Habiba, for a long time. One day she remembered the copy of John’s gospel that someone had given her and which she kept in a drawer.

When she started reading it, she felt the power of God’s Word. The love and sympathy of the Lord Jesus for those He met amazed her. But when she reached chapter 8, she feared what Jesus would do to that woman accused of adultery. She had sinned – that was clear. But the people who brought the accusation were themselves hypocrites. Surely Jesus would have to punish her for her serious sin. Habiba thought He was no different from the religious preachers she herself had come across. Disappointed she shut the book.

During the night, however, Habiba got up and went on reading: “When they continued asking him, he raised himself up and said to them, He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first. … Those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus … saw no-one but the woman, he said to her, Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no-one condemned you? She said, No-one, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more” (John 8:7-11).

Deeply moved, Habiba exclaimed, “That is the Lord I want to follow!”

Today’s reading: Jeremiah 38:14-28 · Romans 8:31-39
