Staying away from sexual immorality is an uncommon stance in our world today. And amongst those that take this stance, those that do it for the true reason make the numbers lesser.
Sex can make you pregnant and give you the STDs. It can lead to abortion. It can create distrust. It can make you cheap etc. Yes, this are all correct but is that suppose to be the true reason? Infact we can hardly see this reasons in the bible(This reasons are not disputed).
The true reason for staying sexually pure should be the fact that you love God. Yes, that you love Him earnestly. And then you would advance from there; because (John 14:15)’If ye love me, keep my commandments.’
You cant claim to love God and not obey His commandments or to handpick the commandments you choose to obey.
You would gladly rebuke stealing but ‘little’ smooching is allowed, after all you would still get married? What happened to Songs of Songs 2 Vs 7?
Also, is your body no longer the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Masturbation and pornography has also become cool because Jesus never said this right?; Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Or perhaps it has been torn out from your bible? Perhaps torn out by You.
Staying pure should be firstly for God before every other reason would follow.
It is not an easy commandment to follow but we can walk this part together. Its not an advertisement but its scriptural; Joshua 23:10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
Lets fight in unity. Lets fight as brethren.
