Am always excited to talk to singles. I love that the Lord put in us this burden, albeit heavy at times, I cannot equate it to the grace that He’s given us with it in tandem.
Sexuality. A topic that is filled with it’s joys, yet in equal measure or more, it’s wounds if not treated with the seriousness and due diligence it deserves.
God in His wondrous grace, ingenuity and love, gave us this gift to a husband and a wife. The world cannot know of this gift, except with revelation of the Holy Spirit.
We cannot uphold it with it’s sanctity and holiness, if all we do is dine at the same table with the one who abhors us so much, and the passion and pleasure that comes from our LORD even more!
SEX before marriage, whether we want to admit it to ourselves or not, makes a god out of it. We cannot bear the fruit of self-control without mustering our emotions, more so our sexuality.
A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. (Proverbs 25:28).
So we can say the metaphor expands to say self-control is a city wall. “Self-control” is a paraphrase of “restraint of the spirit.”
Implicit even in this expression, then, is the idea that the spirit has a structure. And apparently that structure can be damaged, which is distinctly a bad thing.
God has NO casual when it comes to SEX. Its either NONE or ALL. Both are in sacred seasons.
In singleness and in marriage.Restrain your spirit, and the Lord is totally disposed to help you!
