Sexual Sin (blog by me)

Sexual sin is a spiritual trap that includes a wide variety of activities from viewing pornography to premarital sex and various forms of sexual perversion. God has made it clear in the Bible that sex is for one man who is married to one woman. Any sexual activity outside of that constitutes sin. Sex can create spiritual bonds that are difficult to break.

Just like the other spiritual traps, persons are first tempted, then try it, and soon are caught in it. In order to be delivered from it, one must first admit they want help. Some people are proud of their sexual sins and delight in them. This is not the type of person that will find release. One must acknowledge that it is a sin, decide they want to be freed from it, and ask God for deliverance. Then our merciful God will reach down and set the person free.

Are you caught in the spiritual trap of sexual sin? Start the process of getting free with this prayer: Lord, I admit I guilty of sexual sin. Forgive me and deliver me from it. Help me to live a pure life according to Your plan for marriage and sex. In Christ’s Name, Amen.

Say No (poem by me)

When he advances
Even in subtle ways,
Be ready with your “no.”

Even if it’d help your finances,
Say no to the raise,
When he advances.

When it seems innocent though,
Business travel for a few days,
Be ready with your “no.”

Stand firm and take your chances,
Reject his invitation always,
When he advances.

In your heart you know,
You see it in his gaze,
Be ready with your no.

Regardless of the circumstances,
Don’t delay or tiptoe,
When he advances
Be ready with your “no.”

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”—Ephesians 6:10

Sexual Myths Exposed

heb

I hear lots of myths circulating among single Christians. Are you a single Christian who has been deceived by sexual myths? Keep reading to learn the truth about three infamous myths.

MYTH #1) MY FUTURE SPOUSE WANTS ME TO BE EXPERIENCED IN SEXUAL INTERCOURSE. Christian men and women desire someone who is pure. Choosing to either watch pornography or have premarital sex muddles your heart, mind, and spirit. You are also distancing yourself from God when you engage in these sins. Plus, you run the risk of becoming addicted, contracting a disease, or getting pregnant. Your future spouse would prefer to discover this new activity together with you. If you are dating someone who wishes you were more experienced, I would question whether this person is really the right one for you.

MYTH #2) I NEED TO HAVE PREMARITAL SEX TO KNOW WHETHER OR NOT I AM SEXUALLY COMPATIBLE WITH THE PERSON I AM PLANNING TO MARRY. Not only is this statement a myth, the concept of sexual compatibility is also a myth. Sex was designed to be an expression of your love for your spouse. Your major focus should be on bringing pleasure to the other person. Since people are unique, it requires time to learn the best way to give your spouse the most pleasurable experience. So good sex depends on knowing one another, and it also depends on the health of the relationship. If one person stops working to maintain the relationship, your sex life will could become less pleasurable even if it was fun at the beginning of the relationship.

MYTH#3) IF I HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY ACTIVE IN THE PAST, I AM NO LONGER VALUABLE. The right person is going to love you no matter what. God has forgiven all of the sins in your life including any sexual sins you were engaged in. You can be completely honest with both God and your future spouse about your sexual history.

If you keep studying God’s Word and putting it into practice, you will be completely prepared for your future spouse. Don’t worry about a thing.

I hope you have enjoyed this Christian & Single blog series. I have not written from the high and mighty position of having done everything right. I have written from the humble view of having made mistakes and watching the Lord make everything work together for my good. God has great plans for you. I am praying for you to stumble onto that loving someone while clinging to the Lord.
