Say “No” to Adultery!

1 Comment


 
It does not matter what is the nature of sin..”Sin is Sin”. 
But we have a God who forgives and forgets!
If we can confess our sins, we can be forgiven of it! 
It doesn’t matter what we’ve done, if we sincerely turn to God in repentance and confess our sins, He will forgive us of ALL unrighteousness… that includes anything we’ve done, that we are willing to bring before Him!
  1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.”
There is Hope in Jesus! Anyone in Christ is a new creation. 
Adultery is sin too! 
God’s Word says…
 Exodus 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.’
 Proverbs 6:32 “But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.”
  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says, “Adultery (anglicised from Latin adulterium) is a type of extramarital sex. “
But what does Jesus say?
 Matthew 5:27, 28“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery. But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
 Matthew 19:9 “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”
 What do the following writers say? (All scriptures are inspired by the breath of God.)
 Hebrews 13:4 “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.”
 1 Corinthians 6:18 “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”
Can one overcome this temptation? 
Well God does provide a way of escape! One needs to flee to escape!  
In Genesis 39, When Joseph faced temptation, he left his garment in Potiphar’s wife’s hand and fled and got out of the house. The grace of God enabled Joseph to overcome the temptation, by avoiding the tempter. 
 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
Will God forgive a person who sincerely repents of this sin? Well God in His mercy does! But He says, ““Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
 John 8:4-11 They said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent 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.”
Finally….what if one chooses to live in sin?
Ephesians 5:5 “For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.”
 Revelation 21:8 “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Turn wandering eyes to the Lord…He forgives, fixes, heals, restores and binds!
 
 
Be blessed…
