Spiritual Adultery

We are studying Revelation in my small group/Sunday school class at church. If you’ve ever attempted to read the last book in the Bible, then you know how hard it is to understand all the imagery and what exactly is taking place. Our teacher has done a wonderful job of presenting and explaining this part of the bible. I’m so thankful that someone I know is willing to tackle such a challenging lesson and handle our questions with care — and patience.

When I was reading the other day, there was a question in our book that has stuck with me ever since. It asked, “What do you think spiritual adultery is?” There were several answers given, but most people came to the same conclusion.

I’ve always thought about adultery in regards to marriage, however, I’ve never considered spiritual adultery. Like, is that a thing? And, am I guilty of it? I think if we were honest with ourselves, we would say yes.

This is what I know. God is supposed to be our only God in our life, but — is He? And, how do you know?

Striving to obey his commands should be on our mind — not what we need for the moment or to get through the day. Haven’t we all been there — thinking I don’t care WHAT I have to do as long as it works! I think that when we allow our emotions, opinions, or wants to control our decisions, we’re headed for destruction. At least that’s been my experience.

What a thought, though, to think that I’ve been having an affair with other “Gods” so to speak by allowing them to mold my decisions or lead me down the wrong path rather than allowing the one who has given me life and a chance for eternal life to be my priority.

Thank you, Jesus, for your love. You’ll always be my first love. You are amazing.
