Bible Text: Matthew 5:27-30 |

Series:

The 7th Commandment is all about protecting something that's beautiful and guarding something that you care about. The command to not commit adultery protects sexual intimacy in marriage. Since marriage is the context for the full expression of our sexuality, all other sexual sins are implied in this commandment (Ephesians 5:3), including lust (Matthew 5:23). Thankfully, with all the commandments, there is grace and forgiveness when we don't measure up (Matthew 8:11).
