Job 24:15-17

“The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, ‘No eye shall see me:’ and disguiseth his face. In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light. For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.”

What are the things you do, that you wait for the twilight to commit? What is your definition of adultery? Have you ever studied the way God uses the term? What did it mean when He called Israel adulterers? What did Christ say on the subject? Think of someone you can confidently say is NOT an adulterer. What makes us think we can do some things, and no one will know? What disguises have you used to get away with some sin? What thoughts or sins match Job’s metaphor of the robber who marks houses in the daylight for looting in the dark? One of his most sobering assertions is they that do these things, ‘know not the light.’ Do you fear what the morning light will reveal when Christ returns?
