Series of "The Call to Undivided Intimacy"
The 7th Commandment
“Commit, rather than Consume” (Exodus 20:14)
“You shall not commit adultery.” This means you cannot treat another person like a belonging. You cannot treat one another as if the other person were a thing. We must respect, love and care for one another because each person has their unique soul and personality and dignity.
For Lifenet groups and personal reflection:
1. What does our culture teach us about sexual relationship? What problems is it causing in our society?
2. What kind of sins can plant the seeds of adultery long before an actual, physical affair? How can we help those who are in danger of falling into these kinds of sins, and those who are committing adultery?
3. Read Ephesians 5:22-33. According to this passage, how does Christ love you, treat you, care for you? How are you connected with him? How will you deepen your relationship with him? How can this deeper relationship with him change your relationships with others?
[For a married couple] (Talk to your spouse if possible) God wants a husband and a wife to become one flesh in earthly marriage. What support from your spouse do you need to become more intimate partner in Christ? What will it be like for you to work together so that both of you come to know God, imitate Him, serve Him, and worship Him as one flesh?
