Exodus 20:14
[14] “You shall not commit adultery.

DEEP SHEET: Sermon Study Questions
1.   How are the sixth and seventh commandments similar? How do they both come with strong theological backing in Scripture?
2.   Why is marriage so important to society? How have you seen it cheapened in our culture?
3.   Why is Genesis 2:24 so foundational? How does the end of Ephesians 5 give us a grand view of marriage?
4.   How has Satan weakened your perception of marriage? Why would bathing your mind in the gospel naturally strengthen it?
5.   When it comes to adultery, what is the relationship between the heart, the eyes, and the physical act?
6.   Discuss the destructive effects of adultery. How does the gospel bring comfort to married couples who have walked through this and to those who have been divorced and remarried?
7.   How are Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:27-30 sobering, motivating, and convicting? What does it look like to do “whatever it takes” to flee from every form of adultery?
