Four Ways To Guard Against Adultery – Part 3. Continued from yesterday… We have been looking at ways to prevent you from falling into adulterous relationships.
I mentioned that if you can do these four things, you will be doing yourself a lot of good to guard against adultery.
1. Guard your mind
2. Guard your heart
3. Guard your mouth
4. Guard your body
Having identified ways to guard against adultery, what do you do next?
Keep your heart. Don’t be given to unproductive discussions with people who have no regard for God. Deliberately avoid such people that you know will influence you negatively! Be selective with your associations.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. – Pro 4:23 KJV
Message Translations says:
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. – Pro 4:23 MSG
What else to do?
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; -1Pe 1:13 KJV
Take up the loose ends of your mind and tuck them in. Do not allow your mind to ramble endlessly on just anything. Be deliberate in filling your heart with God’s word.
Amplified version puts it this way
So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed. -1Pe 1:13 AMP
If you are already entangled in adultery, seek help immediately. Destroy that which seeks to destroy you. Open up to trusted mentors or any other authority figure. Just opening up to the right person weakens the power of iniquity. If you hide it, you are ensnared by it.
I pray that the help you need at this time be available for you in Jesus name!
