Guys, let’s talk.
Yeah I said it SEX!
The biggest talked about word in the world today. I mean it’s in all the songs, all the music videos, it’s in most conversations. Sex is basically a world trend, but why?
Why is a gift from God that is meant to bring joy to two married people thrown around like a rag doll?
Why is there a rush to go give up something that should be sacred to you?
Why is the question now “why are you waiting?” instead of “why aren’t you waiting?”
Well I can answer that…. it’s because we are unknowing. Being unknowing brings on curiosity then curiosity brings on temptation and BAM ! You stepped right into the devil’s trap… Sex before marriage!
Now this isn’t to bring shame to those who have done this, no this is to bring knowledge to those who have questions.
You see, the thing that many of us do not realize is that God created us. Why am I saying that? Well, because he knows our battles, inside and out. He knows our desires before we even desire them, so he already gave us the answers!
God says in 1 Corinthians 7:2, “…to avoid fornication (sex outside marriage), let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” Right here in this text he says because he knows we will desire and temptation will come forth, he has already handmade you a man/woman who you are meant to become one with. So grab that thought the devil put in your head that you can have sex with just about anyone you please and throw it away. You are meant to share this unity with that one person who is designed to love you forever until death do you part. Don’t settle for less because of the pressure of your surroundings, keep your head high and know that God has greater for you!
Wait for that special someone! Hey, if you already found them, then marry them. God says if you truly love your boyfriend/girlfriend, it is better to marry then to burn with sinful desires. Don’t allow yourself to fall in the trap of the enemy when God has already equipped you with the answer!
However, this doesn’t mean everyone you feel attached to is your soul mate, no. It means keep your eyes open and be not a servant to man. Don’t bend your resolve because your significant other is hinting their want to have sex; if you are not ready, stand firm and wait!
Your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit that is within you, so don’t just go feeding it trash.
Think of it like this, you’ve bought a million dollars house and you’re about to go pick out furniture. I’m 100% sure you’re not gonna go to Goodwill and buy so 29¢ furniture for your house! Girl stop, boy stop, you know you’re gonna go buy yourself some fresh out the box, fresh off the shelf furniture that cost you too much money for no reason!
So why treat your body any different? God paid the price already, He gave His only son for your sins. He let His son shed His blood so that we can be forgiven for all of our wrong doings, so why feed His creation trash? Why give your body up to someone who does not value it? The answer is you don’t. Don’t stress yourself out with sneaky around with someone. Trying to find the right house and time to go “do it” when you can wait for marriage and not have to sneak anything!
God never said you will stay abstinent all your life, He just said stay abstinent until He places your husband/wife at your feet.
So guys wait! All that comes with not waiting is truly not worth it. Sure you get the “bragging rights” of not being a virgin but does that make you cool? No, it really just means you gave the one thing you have that is meant to be treasured away to someone undeserving. It means you sinned against God.
…. but aren’t sins forgiven? Yes, but only if you ask from the depths of your heart. 1 John 1:9 says. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” So confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God has forgiven you.
Remember a life of pleasure isn’t worth an eternity in hell.
I’m going to wait, are you?
Take it or leave it,
