You Aren't Safe from Adultery
Seeing Bathsheba bathing led to David’s adultery with her (2 Samuel 11:2-3).
David was a man after God’s own heart. David was born again. David wrote divinely inspired scripture. David was blessed with wisdom and power. David enjoyed an everlasting covenant relationship with God.
So what chance do you think you have to escape the effect of looking at naked women?
Those who are already gone—who’ve given up and forsaken their relationship with God—may say: Well, if you’ve seen it, you’ve done it. So might as well do it.
Those who are not yet gone may say, I will make a covenant with my eyes not to look upon a woman (Job 31:1).
May the Lord grant you grace to show that you are not already gone.
