You can’t commit adultery and have it be just a sexual thing. I have talked to too many couples, too many singles, too many high school students and they all tell me the same thing. “Ed, if I could only turn back the clock, man, I wouldn’t do it. My children, my spouse, this girl I dated back in high school or in college, or I am with now. I wish, I hadn’t done it.”
After I am aware of my boredom, I am turning from temptation, I need to confess my sin and come clean. David should have confessed his sin. The Bible says in I John 1:9, “If we confess out sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us for all unrighteousness.” You see David sinned greatly before God and God wanted to forgive him greatly. Later on he did. David should have come clean. He should have confessed his sin, but he didn’t, he kept it a secret. He committed adultery with Bathsheba, Uriah was dead, he married her and for twelve months he thought he had gotten away with the perfect crime.
Until one day David’s close friend, Nathan, walked into his office and asked if David had heard the story about the little sheep. He knew that would get David’s attention because David loved sheep, he was a shepherd for years and years. He told David that there was a rich man with a bunch of sheep, and a poor man who had one little ewe lamb. The little ewe was the pet of the family, slept with the children, was fed out of a bottle.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Christian News
