Reduced To A Piece Of Bread. What I want to write about this morning is a plague that is eating deep into the body of Christ. You see believers, tongue-talking, bible reading children of God falling into this sin, some very deliberately and some not so deliberately. Whether it was a deliberate sin or not, it doesn’t make it any less sinful and displeasing to God.
We shall take our text from the book of
2 Sam 11: 2-5
One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”
The mere fact that it is a well-thought process means we can prevent it from happening.
The book of Proverbs calls it a senseless act. It turns those who involve in it into a crust of bread. Reduced To A Piece Of Bread
Pro 6:26 (KJV) For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
The consequences far outweigh and outlive the momentary pleasure. What. it does is that it throws the family into perpetual sorrow and heartache. It affects finances and one’s wealth and health.
There are countless stories of men who were once rich but adultery swept their wealth away. Their families are not always together.
Why do you want to put fire in your bosom and then not expect to be burnt?
You will definitely be burnt. And you know burns always leave a scar. Reduced To A Piece Of Bread
You are unmarried, a guy or a lady, and you are involved in this, just know that it has consequences.
You say you can’t help it. Days of ignorance God has winked at but now He is holding us accountable for our sins. God will forgive but the consequences live with us.
As in the days of David in our text, it was a well-thought-of action like it is with most of the people that engage in it.
There is always enough time to think about the consequences.
I want to encourage us this morning to stop the process and think of the heartache and pains you are putting your family through. Reduced To A Piece Of Bread
You are getting too close for comfort to the opposite sex, cut off the relationship before you get into trouble
You really like him but it’s too late you are already married, cut off that relationship before you cut off your life and destiny
Be true to yourself and retrace your steps. Ask for God’s Mercy and turn around from your ways.
You are in another man’s arms because you want no one force you. You are in the embrace of another woman other than your wife because you love the pleasure of sin.
Let me stop here. We will not be Reduced To A Piece Of Bread
I pray for God’s Mercy to come into the heart of all those truly seeking a way out in Jesus’ name
