Following Easter Sunday, Pastor Parkey teaches on the heart of adultery present in the world and how we can identify it and address it! We read in James 4 how a heart of adultery can cause fighting, war, lust, jealousy, judging, coveting, and selfishness. When we have a heart of adultery, we are in friendship with the world! We need to accept God’s grace in our lives and submit to God so we can deal with our adulterous hearts.
Submission to God requires a few things.
Humility: we need to agree with the assessment from God of who we are.
Repentance: we must turn from our sins and shortcomings that don’t reflect God’s Word.
Release: we have to release relationships to God’s power and authority, no longer judging or trying to change someone else.
Obedience: we should put all of our energy into becoming obedient to God.
No Rationalizing: we can no longer rationalize sin or deny our behavior exists because of what others have done to us or because of bad circumstances.
