Scriptures tell the story of the woman who was pulled into the city streets and how many of the people who had gathered around the scene wanted to stone her, to kill her, because of her sin. Yet Jesus quietly, brilliantly, came to her aid. Though He did not look at them, He looked into the very heart of every one of them. He saw their sin in all its ugliness. The sin, hopefully, no one else knew about. The sin they tried to conveniently forget. Jesus looked straight into their souls and said. ‘Let anyone of you who is without sin cast the first stone.’ One by one they dropped the stones, shamed, with no defense before God, or man, they turned and walked away.
And so it is today, Christ looks into our souls and says the same thing. 'Let those of you who are without sin, those of you whose life is so perfect that you feel you have no need of a sacrifice to cover your sin, come forth.' Go ahead, cast the first stone at the Jewish people. Any takers? Not if you are honest. It's always easier to blame others, isn't it. Not to take our share of the responsibility for something gone wrong.
Never let yourself forget, that we have all sinned. We all have that ugly side of ourselves. The side that demands us to seek God's forgiveness. The ugly side that is in desperate need of a sacrifice to cover it.
Everyone of us is responsible for the death of Jesus Christ. Everyone of us created the situation that brought Christ into this world to be the sacrifice for sin. The sin of all mankind, not just some of us. Because of our sin, we are all, every son and daughter of Adam, Christ Killers.
