Christ came to show compassion and forgiveness for sinners. He condemned sin but let the woman guilty of adultery go free with the reminder that she was to sin no more. None of us is perfect; we can only hope that we will be saved. We suffer in this life but can accept the loss of everything as so much rubbish if we can only have Christ and be given a share in his resurrection. In this way, God, through Christ, is doing something new and is calling us from sinfulness to a life of service.
