John 7:51 Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?
Nicodemus knew the laws and how to interpret them properly. He knew the law does not stand to judge people without knowing what they did – that is what man does through gossip!
God does not strive to trip us up and allow us to fall flat on our faces; He wants us to understand we are sinners and need His help.
No matter how much we have done and how far we have gone in our past, God is willing to forgive and forget as long as we are willing to come to Him and ask for that forgiveness.
