I will never forget the scene; it was left imprinted in my mind to the point that many years later and now 23 from time to time I still think of that scene. How many of us recall the EPIC Hand Print in the back of an Old/New vintage car on the biggest ship known to men at that time? I know I still do. Or how many of us still watch the Disney movies where fairytale relationships are built on a lustful foundation right before our eyes?
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” - 1 Corinthians 6:18
But we “men” have also found a way to manipulate women, we have found a way to rob them from their inner purity, to somehow blind them to the fact that they are worthless unless they “give it up”, how dirty and perverted can our minds continue to get. How shallow can we really be, then we wonder why women think that all men are dogs, it’s because we continue to hurt them, to strip them from their worth, to have sex with them and move to the next, impregnate them and leave. LADIES: Let go of a bad, abusive, emotionally trying sexual relationship. Don’t settle. They are NOT worth your purity.
I’ve learned the best and most fruit-bearing relationships bring you closer to God every single day. So allow me to encourage, don’t enter a relationship just because you want someone to tell you that they love you, Jesus already did that with arms open wide. Enter into a relationship because that person will bring you closer to God day by day. Protecting your purity with each step you take.
GUYS: Give her something to tell her friends about. Give her Jesus, because l know one thing for sure, that the best feeling in the world is realizing that you're perfectly happy without the very thing you thought you once needed. Don’t sale yourself short, you have value, you have worth, you are a daughters and sons of a King. So let me ask you, How much time are you wasting dating the wrong person when you could be getting yourself ready to meet the right person?
I've Been Holding on for 23 years in a generation known for sex. I WILL WAIT FOR MY WIFE. But hold it, what happens if you have already given yourself away, then remember this, “Even with all your foolishness and Sins, Christ took one GOOOOD look at you and said: “You’re still worth dying for.”
I want you to know this; you have been changed, Healed, Freed, and Delivered. You found joy, Peace, Grace, and favor. I never want you to go back, better yet you can't go back, to the way you used to be before the presence of Christ came and changed you. All your shames, Guilt, and Sins, They have been forgiven; No more chains, Fear, your past is over and rest in the Glory of God knowing that. I am not saying that you have it all together, I am saying, “Philippians 1:6 and Philippians 1:25” and GENESIS 50:20
And finally, if you still don’t know what movie I am referring to its Titanic. So Brothers if you are struggling with PORN, addicted to it know this: Purity is far more important than temporary pleasure. Save yourself for your future spouse. Porn cultivates a single standard of beauty that no real women can live up to. Porn is a drug that leads to addiction. Guys: STOP watching it, Ladies: Get rid of the toys. Titus2:11-13 choose #PurityOverLust Amen~! Amen.
