The Beautiful Life

“However, when they persisted with their question, He raised Himself up and said, Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7 AMP)

Here, Jesus made a significant statement about judging others. Because Jesus upheld the legal penalty for adultery, stoning, etc., Jesus could not be accused of being against the law. But by saying that only a sinless person could throw that first stone, Jesus had highlighted the importance of compassion and forgiveness.
 
When others are caught in sin, how quick are we to pass judgment? Among other things, to do so is to act as though we have never sinned. It is God’s role to judge, not ours. Our role is to show forgiveness and compassion. Jesus was without sin. This is why The Bible says

“No one can come to the Father; but by Me…” (John 14:6).

Salvation is through Jesus :

“The sacrifice of Christ as atonement for sin is the great truth around which all other truths cluster.” (Gal 6:14)

The person who lives the beautiful life has their heart in harmony with THE Heart of the only ONE who will ever be qualified to “throw that first stone,” but never will.
