Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into Gehenna.
“It was also said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a bill of divorce. But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
This is very clear yet we keep trying to change the laws of God! He does not want us cutting off body parts, but He wants us to be so in love with Him, so ready to do His will that we would willing to sacrifice something for Him. Many give their lives, what are you willing to give up for Our Lord?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, following your law has restored the balance to my life and brought me more joy and happiness than I have ever known. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
I long to see your face, O Lord.
