Sexual Sins and Staying Pure

Many of us struggle with sexual morality. Lets face it, staying sexually pure is one of the hardest things to do even for Christians. Statistics show that just as many Christians commit adultery or have premarital sex just as often as non believers. Many feel that it is impossible to stay pure in the eyes of God, and thats because it is-without God at least. God gives us the strength to do all things and we need to take advantage of this strength and self control that comes with our relationship with Jesus.

The bible warns us that any sin that you commit is against someone else except for sexual sins. Think about it. If you murder somebody, steal something, lie, or cheat you are sinning against another human. However if you lets say have sex before marriage then you have sinned against your own body. You have to deal with the pain and guilt of the fact that you took away your own purity. Also you may have had a child out of wedlock, or caught an STD. Now that definitely cannot happen from stealing.

The key is to ask God for self control. When you you do this, the Holy Spirit will give you what you need to stay pure. Nobody can do it alone, But with the Lord on your side, you can do anything, and you won’t end up sinning against yourself.

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18

word! we pray to God to help with strength and then we carry out the command - FLEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Run like Joseph did when his master's wife tried to seduce him. They guy got out of there so quick he left his cloak! The problem nowadays is most think they are strong enough to resist! ha!

The way I see it also is that the body is the temple of God... when we defile ourselves, we defile the place where God dwells. We won't take rubbish and take it into the church - the corporate building... so why do it to our own bodies.. ! God Give us the wisdom to ask for your strength, for in our asking you will give it.

Have a great weekend luv. x
