FOR MEN ONLY: SEXUAL PURITY AND OUR VISION
Sex is fantastic! God created this act of marriage for a man and women to enrapture each other, delight in each other and use it to procreate. God made Adam and then he made Eve, to fit right in his embrace.For her body to connect with his, for their souls to unite in the physical exchange of pleasure. He made them for sexual intimacy. In fact the Bible is full of rapturous passages that talk about the delight of sex as God planned it to be. Sex creates intimate bonds between a man and his wife to the extent that the Bible calls them one! If sex is great, why is there a cry for purity? Sex is not the problem, beloved. Lust is. The refreshing gift of sexual intimacy, as designed between a man and a woman in a marital covennat has been watered down in our cultures today. It has been commercialized, exchanged for money, used for abuse and hurting others, the cause of heartbreaks and the destruction of great men! Lust is every man’s enemy, especially you-The man who is a follower of Christ Jesus,
The Bible says in 2 Samuel 11 that in the spring time when kings go out to war, David the King stayed behind in Israel. As he was in his balcony, he saw a gorgeous naked women bathing. His eyes lingered and he lusted for her. He found out the women was married but he didn’t care. He lost his vision. He called for her and took her to his bed. He used her body to fulfill his lust and got her pregnant. Beloved, learn from this. When Kings go out to war, join them. Be at the right place, always. David was in the wrong environment and it caused him to lose vision. Are you in the right place? When everyone is having dinner, why are you browsing videos online alone in your bedroom? Why do you visit her house alone? The day you refuse to go to the place where Kings are, you become a palace fool and you will lose vision. Kings are men who go out to fight for their sexuality. They fight to protect the virtue of their women-even from themselves. When you don’t do something about your environment, like David, you will find yourself in a rollercoaster of sin and struggles. Like David, you will try to cover it up. He slept with Bathsheba. He got her pregnant. He kept the affair a secret. He tried to trick the husband, Uriah, to sleep with her to cover his siring of the pregnancy. He failed, so he murdered Uriah and then he hypocritically took in the wife. David was exposed by prophet Nathan and his sin is available for thousands of generation after him to read. The Bible says in Numbers 32:23 that your sin will find you out. Sexual sin blinds our vision as a Christian. You want your vision back? Ask yourself this: Are you in the right place?
