Sex is sex. There is nothing like “protected” or “unprotected sex”. When you’re married and you sleep with someone,it’s sex. Likewise when you are not married and you sleep with someone, it’s still sex.
To us, Christians, (living like Christ) having sex before marriage is unacceptable. It is sin. God knows everything and He’s aware that when you have sex before marriage you might
get pregnant unexpectedly,
attempt abortion, contract STDs and all these and more will have negetive implications on your life one way or the other possibly till the end.
For instance, a teenage girl who comes from a humble home gets pregnant. Automatically, she thwarts her parents efforts of making her a better person and leaves them disappointed. If she’s not fortunate she’s left to fend for herself and her baby alone hustling her way all through life.
The instruction is simple! No sex before marriage. Period! God speaks strongly against fornication throughout the Bible. It’s not a gray area He tip toes around. 1 Cor 6:15-20 speaks extensively about the subject but what touches my heart everytime i visit the scripture is the verse 20. “For you were bought at a price;therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
It’s only foolish people who refuse to take counsel when they know the repucurssions of the act.
Dear sister, how long will you keep having “protected sex” by taking drugs to kill innocent babies to prevent unwanted pregnancies yet damaging your own body in the process while this guy walks around unharmed?
How long will you keep batter trading God’s temple for material things?
And oh don’t you dare think that God will bless you with a fruitful marriage and a happy everafter life while still fornicating. Take it or leave it, God honors those that honor Him. He’s a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him and He says “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you.” Matt 6:33
So what is preventing you from living like He wants you to?
Money? Clothes? Gadgets? Cars? Travelling around the world? What?
If any of these or more are the reasons you allow your ego to be stained, then here’s some good news for you. Proverbs 31:10b says, “You’re priced high above rubies”. It means you are more expensive than diamonds are. Don’t take this for granted, girl. You’re a priceless jewel. Material things don’t sum up to your worth. Don’t limit your value to anything not even diamonds. God created you beautiful for a reason, not merely sleeping around with men.
Until the guy waits in holiness and marries you, don’t give him the chance to enjoy what he hasn’t paid for. If he thinks you’re not an attractive figure let him go. Truth is, he has seen the product and doesn’t have the price that the ticket says must be paid. Sometimes rejection is a blessing and not a curse.
God bought you at a price and He wants you to be presented to Him without blemish or wrinkles.
Perhaps you didn’t know. Now you do. Make ammends,never too late.
Abstaining sex before marriage doesn’t make you “holier than thou” neither does it guarantee your going to Heaven. It gives you a hope of salvation and it shows that you trust God to reward you as you obey Him.
Don’t be moved. We live in a sex saturated world where they make sex seem like the only gateway to a beautiful life. Social media platforms won’t stop crooning about it. Bloggers won’t stop offering the tips. Musicians won’t stop endorsing it in their music. Telenovelas won’t stop demonstrating it. What about you?
Renew your mind. Shun the former ways. Ask God for forgiveness. Accept the gift of righteousness. Walk in holiness. Have faith in God to lead you to someone in His own timing who will appreciate and treasure you as God’s bride whose worth is far more than diamonds.
To my fellow sisters on this journey, i know it’s not easy but don’t give up. I pray for abundant grace on your pursuit of holiness. I know it will end well with you. Hold on!
Light and Love,
