I think the teaching on sex has become more of a moral code than a biblical one.
What do I mean? When most parents say it’s good for you to keep yourself till marriage they are no longer emphasizing it because it is what God wants but so your husband will be happy and know that you’re a good girl.
Like all moral codes people now think it’s up to them to choose if they want to keep themselves or not.
Well, If you’re going to subscribe to the kingdom of God, you’ll have to abide by the King’s rules. And He’s not sharing you with anybody, at least not until you’re married.
1 cor 3: 16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
Iniquity defiles. Immoral sex is the greatest defilement. You don’t know how much you lose just because you have sex outside God’s will.
1 cor 6:18 “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God and ye are not your own?”
When God was about to come into the camp of the Israelites, He said the camp must be clean. “I don’t want to see anything ‘filthy'”. It was not the temple, just the place where the camp was.
Deut 23: 12 “You shall also have a place outside the camp to which you may go, 13 you shall have a spade among your tools, and when you [prepare to] sit down outside [to relieve yourself], you shall dig a hole with it and shall turn and cover up your waste. 14 Since the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to rescue you and to defeat your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy (undefiled); and He must not see anything indecent among you or He will turn away from you.”
Have you taken a look at how beautiful the temple of Exodus was. It was perfect; the detailing, the execution. Everything was perfect. And now YOU are that temple.
Be Holy even as God is Holy.
To those who want to serve God but find it difficult to come out of whatever situation they are in. Maybe you don’t want to be where you are but ‘you just can’t help it’. Well God is taking a step towards you today. Come out of it. You can. You can.
Grace to you.
