Proverbs 6:32 But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.
We live in a time when adultery is a word fast falling out of the general consciousness. We are either living in denial, or worse, reaching a low ebb where any moral direction is utterly lost. I think one of the worst consequences and least understood aspects of human nature is the fact that there is a battle to be waged with our senses and we must win that battle, or we are lost without remedy. If you wonder, why the Church talks about the “need for revival”, it is to just this. The people need to be reminded, retrained, re-equipped to wage the battle of overcoming themselves. Call it what you will, interpret it as you may, if you follow Jesus at all you will know in your heart that you are in peril and ultimately face a choice. To sin or not to sin. Do you have a plan to overcome your senses? Your eyes that are subjected to images all day long that invite you to stray, your ears that hear all manner of foulness, your appetites that lead into gluttony and greed. (See proverbs 23:2)
