You Shall Not Commit Adultery
September 17, 2021 • Exodus 20:14
The Ten Commandments help us see that our relationships are important to God. The seventh commandment, “you shall not commit adultery” helps us live rightly in sacred marriage relationships. Join Groundwork as we study the story of David and Bathsheba, a biblical example of adultery, and other New Testament scriptures to help us better understand why marriage is sacred, why adultery is so particularly intimate and painful, and why it negatively affects not just those who sin, but also those who are sinned against. We recognize divorce is an unfortunate, but common reality for both justified and unjustified reasons, so together we’ll discuss this commandment in light of that reality and talk about how we find the hope and grace to help us forgive or receive forgiveness and recommit to keeping this commandment.
