The Pit of Immorality

Description

If you are in an immoral relationship, stop it, repent, and He will forgive you, and bring you out of your pit.

Today, I want you to focus on something that is an increasing problem in the Church today.  Immorality.

Solomon tells us in Proverbs 22:14,

The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; he who is abhorred by the LORD will fall there.

And he says in Proverbs 23:27,

For a harlot is a deep pit, and a seductress is a narrow well.

Immorality is a deep pit.  A pit that is difficult to get out of once you have gotten yourself into it.  Not only do you get physically involved with another, there is an emotional entanglement that is not that easy to get out of.

Solomon also says immorality is a narrow well.  It is binding, restrictive, and it suffocates your spiritual life.  If you are seeking God for deliverance while continuing to engage in immoral behavior, your effort is fruitless.

If you are in the pits today because of an immoral relationship, you must cut off that relationship before seeking God’s deliverance.  If you will ask God for help after you have repented and cut off that relationship, He will help you beyond anything you could imagine.

God is a merciful God.  And He has the ability to work something for good even in a situation like this.  If you are truly repentant and broken, God can do something good.

God is the only One who can break something and make it more valuable.  I break things, and they lose their value.  But when God breaks something, it becomes more valuable.

If you are in an immoral relationship, stop it, repent, and He will forgive you, and bring you out of your pit.
