MATTHEW 5:30_And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee…
More graphics. The inevitable process is if the looking is not controlled, the act is very likely to occur. Jesus says before you get physically involved in sexual sin, it’s better to cut off your hand. Again, don’t go cutting off your hand!! Please stay with these devotions.
Let’s go back to Proverbs 6 concerning adultery, verses 24-29 (KJV), “To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. 25Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. 26For by means of a whorish woman, a man is brought to a piece of bread, and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life. 27Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? 28Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? 29 So he that goeth in to his neighbor’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.”
The Bible says whoever touches her shall not be innocent – looking leads to touching, and touching leads to disaster! If you play with fire, you will get burned. If you feel the Bible is too binding and you are free to make your own decisions, please give the Creator of sexuality credit for knowing how it works. But you do have a free will to make your own decisions, and your free will always bear the consequences.
As in every case, Jesus is trying to save you from misery and bondage.
You do not want to live a life of regret.
Almighty God, Thank You for warning me of disaster ahead. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ warns His disciples of disaster—I should listen!
