An Ounce of Prevention: 'The Wait Is Sexy'

Wait until marriage.:


Something that I think we need to always remember when it comes to sex before marriage is 1) waiting until AFTER our wedding is a biblical instruction; 2) God does not OWE us sex (or a husband) and 3) there are very clear consequences that come from fornication. I Corinthians 6:9-10 tells us that it can keep us from inheriting the kingdom of God and, if it goes unrepentant, it can lead to...let's just say a very uncomfortable afterlife (Revelation 21:8). Sexual sin is serious. Just because the world makes it seem like it's "no biggie", make no mistake about it. The Word takes it *very seriously* (I Corinthians 6:16-20).

That said...

I haven't checked all of this out, although I have seen Insecure before (and was *floored* to find out Yvonne Orji was a virgin in real life!) and I've seen her talk about it on a radio interview before. Plus, a male friend of mine who is a believer hipped me to it, so I'm going to take him at his referral.

If you're a virgin, there is MUCH VALUE in your gift. HOLD ON TO IT.

If you're currently abstaining, one of the consequences of not being a virgin is withdrawal moments. Trust me, I know. God never intended for us to stop having sex once we started. Yet there are rewards for repentance (I John 1:9-10) and mind renewal (Romans 12:2). Trust the process.

If you're having sex, there's no way around the fact that it's a form of idol worship (Exodus 20:3); anything that we put above God is just that. I Corinthians 6:18 tells us to *flee sexual immorality*. There's no time like the present!

Anyway, watch the video and share with others...
Virginity is beautiful. And purposeful. And of God...
It really, really is!

His Purpose, His Presence, His Peace...
