Below is the shortclip of last Sunday Message.
Adultery has become more universal in this 21 century as man loses more and more of what has been wholly satisfying in man’s intimacy with God’s glory. At the same time, the spirit of adultery burns more with desires, even in gradual and subtle acceptance of flirting and seduction, giving excuses to itself in the beauty of the flesh. This causes all peoples to lose the beautiful will of God in "love and sex" between man and woman.
I have known some cases that are in this situation but they do not know how hideous that it has hurt their spirit, soul, body, destroying all their relationship and wisdom. It has become a bondage to them; they cannot get out of it and slowly think that this is natural and common. They would think as long as not to be finding out by the other party, they just continue to be responsible and serve as a right duty to the other half, it is alright to them. What I am talking here is refer more to the non-Christian.
As for Christian, the hurt is greater because not only the body and mind but the spirit. The day and night accuser continue to accuse and condemn the heart who was to be God’s dignified child but has totally destroys their self-identity. They become more isolated to the people, especially to the brethren and people who are more blissful than them because their conscience leads them into deeper guiltiness that unable to face them, especially to their family and friends whom they loved. Their heart is very helpless and miserable, just like been crushed into pieces, there is no strength, no peace, no joy and no hope for tomorrow, and what’s left is a fearful heart. Fear of what will happen to his life, family, health and even the future.
In Proverbs 6:32 (king James version), “But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
But there is an answer to all this bondage, which is through the blood of Jesus Christ!
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.
Only through deciding to turn towards God today, can see the great love and mercy of God reaching and touching him, therefore the spirit of sonship will be restore and heart will be strengthens more and more. Yes, turning to God is the first step of healing process, without turning to Christ you can never know and experience the great cross of grace and mercy.
“For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.”
Everyone have commit this, even there’s no physically involve, but just by thought, there is this dissatisfaction in our heart and this is adultery. So we all need Christ and only satisfy by Him and God knows what we have done or what we will do, therefore He paid us all through the death and resurrection.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
So I look up to the Cross…
Whenever I feel accused, I look up to the cross of Christ’s love and mercy.
Whenever I feel guilty, I look up to the cross of Christ’s forgiveness.
Whenever I feel lousy, I look up to cross of Christ’s glorious identity.
Whenever I feel lost, I look up to the cross of the Holy Spirit guidance.
Whenever I feel no purpose, I look up to the cross of Christ’ eternal kingdom.
May we continue to look up to the great grace of the cross, all our troubles and worries will be disperse and overwhelm with a thanksgiving heart and be glorified together with Christ and His Spirit.
Here is a hymn I like a lot, no matter what kind of problems I have, I just want to seek God face to face and to love Him because I belong to Him and He belong to me….from the heart of dryness filled with all His love and blessing for me.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.
