Guilty As Charged? Try Jesus!

Guilty As Charged?  Try Jesus!


There was a woman caught in an adulterous act.

Her accusers came after her with all of the “facts…”


She came to Jesus...  With a heart-felt plea

“Master….”  “Have mercy on someone like me!”


Jesus looked at her as she wept and cried.

So many other things she had already tried.


Coming to Jesus… She felt scared and alone…

Jesus told her accusers; “You without sin.”

 “Throw the first stone.”


One by one… They dropped the stones and fled.

Rather than face the truth…

 They ran away instead…


Jesus told the woman; “You're forgiven.”

 Go and sin no more…”

She was the meaning of what

God’s grace was meant for.


If you’re caught in a situation,

 with "no way out…"

This is what the meaning

 of salvation is all about!


Any “accusers” you may have will

quickly run and hide.

When to Jesus you come… 

And have him “on your side…”


Allow the master to cleanse your life this very hour…

And experience the love of his life-changing power!


He’ll take you in with his arms wide open...

“You’re forgiven!”  Will be the lovely words spoken!


Be “caught up” in the savior’s

redeeming grace…

He’ll give you hope and put a smile

 on your face!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
