I’ve Committed Adultery

Not physically. I’ve not kissed another man or done anything else with any man except @chrisdbeall since March of 1992. But, in my mind, I’ve had thoughts that I’m even embarrassed to admit to myself.  I’ve entertained more impure scenes than a pastor’s wife should. Than any wife should.
You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY ’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  Matthew 5:27-28
Dang. I certainly don’t mean to make light of the Word of God.  By no means.  But, I do want to draw your attention to sin that might be tangling you up.  I know it has tangled me up. It’s so easy for us to judge, isn’t it?  We see the news and hear about the big crimes.  We don’t hear about the little stuff.  Because lusting over a person who is not your spouse is little stuff… In the world’s eyes. But in God’s?  He sees it as huge.  Because it is truly out of the heart that the rest of us happens. Guard your heart.  Take those impure and ungodly thoughts captive the moment they enter your mind. And the peace of God will overwhelm you and comfort you and free you. Trust me.
