When Jesus told the woman to "go and sin no more," He knew she could not accomplish this by herself. She was still prone to repeating the same behavior. She had more than likely developed a routine that caused her to frequent the wrong places at the wrong times. After she had a loving encounter with Jesus, she had access to the Power that could help her make different decisions. She knew that only in His presence could she maintain the desire to stay away from her old lifestyle and the power to resist temptation when confronted by it. That is our key to success as well.
As you receive God's love for you, know for a certainty that the only way to live for Him is to live with Him. Jesus must become your constant companion and friend to "[work] in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him" (Philippians 2:13). Won't you join me in receiving the initiative-taking and life-changing love of Jesus today?
