In the beginning, God gave man and woman the joy and pleasure of having sexual relations within the bounds of marriage. The Bible
is perfectly clear about the importance of maintaining sexual purity within the boundaries of that union, between only man and his wife.

Look at what God says about sexual purity. “You should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable,
not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God.”

“For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life”
{1 Thessalonians 4:3-5, 7} These passages outline God’s reasons for calling for sexual purity in the lives of His children.

Many young women are super confused about where to ‘draw the line’ and it’s easy to understand why. We live in a world that constantly bombards us, with impure behavior and encourages loads of participation in it.

We live in such a sex-crazed culture, where sexual temptation is literally everyone’s battle and everyone’s pleasurable hobby.

These temptations we all face come even more swiftly, especially when you start to fall in love and enter into a courtship or a dating relationship, it’s absolutely natural to want to express your love in many physical ways.

But on the other hand we also know that God wants us to remain sexually pure, in both our actions and our thought life. Sometimes this is an extremely tough battle and balance, but showing love for another, while remaining pure is totally 100% possible. Even though our culture tells us, that love always has to be in physical ways.

Sexual sin, is a dark plague that is over-taking our generation.
It’s a secret part of our lives…something we don’t usually tell anyone about, because we are too ashamed.

Even with this Sexual Sin Plague among us, Purity is still attainable and It is sustainable.
Purity, is where true radiant freedom is found. The freedom of knowing that your Heavenly Father has your life story all planned out and he will protect you and give you the desires of your heart all in His time.

Maintain your sexual purity through the power of our Lord, Jesus Christ!
The same power that conquered the grave, lives in us…so therefore, we have the power to overcome the temptations of this fallen world.

I’ve often heard many of my peers say that “God’s Standards are too high.” This Ladies is completely wrong. We are all ‘called’ to live holy lives, but He will never set a standard that is too high for us to meet. He provides the power to live true purity out in our everyday relationships.

Sexual purity for some,
is just an impossible dream…
If God calls, for a standard to be lived out – when a person surrenders his/her life to Christ,
it is then made possible.

Always remember…
“You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your body”
(I Corinthians 6:20).

When you came to Christ, when you affirmed Him as Lord of your life,
you surrendered your entire self, including your body, to God.
He paid the ultimate price for it,
shed blood of God Almighty!

Use your bodies to serve the Lord and keep your bodies clean and pure as a temple of the Holy Spirit!!

Until Next Time,
