My life was never the same after that day. I walked away once and for all from my life of sin and asked Jesus to come take up residence in my heart.
The greatest thing that happened was that my story has been published in a best-selling book and many have found hope. I’m sure you have even read my story in this book. Below is the excerpt directly from the manuscript:
At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” John 8: 2-11 NIV
Hey everyone, Melissa here. Yes, I took the story of the woman caught in adultery and fictionalized it, gave her a story, a voice. Hope you don’t mind 🙂
We haven’t had a Genesis 5020 story in a very long time and I thought what better source than the Bible? It’s full of them.
This blog began as a place to share such stories so I thought I would use my imagination and give you one. I do hope you have been encouraged and remember what Jesus still does in lives today.
However, I would love for a reader to share their story here, so if you have a story to share email me at: 5020genesisstories (at) gmail (dot) com. Otherwise you never know when a character from the Bible might decide to make an appearance to encourage you!
I hope you all had a blessed Christmas.
