Christ Said No to Adultery and Lust

 

Matthew 5:27-32

 

Jesus Christ has condemned sinful glances.

After repentance, we get more chances.

Adultery and lust are quite unjust.

People who are involved betray God’s trust.

 

Sacrifice things that lead to offences.

We’re here to praise God with our five senses.

God Almighty has given us so much.

We have gifts of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.

 

Flip Wilson’s Geraldine said, “What you see

Is what you get.”  Let’s get good things to see.

Let us study salvation history.

We can’t understand every mystery.

 

Marriage is the way I travel through life.

It sure helps to have a wonderful wife.
