Reverence for God

In my last post I talked about purity of the mind which is the first step to living a pure life. One thing I must let you know is that purity isn’t a one deal thing you don’t sign a contract once and that’s it your pure for the rest of your life.

No, purity is a daily trial. It’s not easy and that’s why the world doesn’t encourage it. Now God gave us all a gift! Not a talent, although I know many wonderful Christians who have been blessed with amazing talents! But that doesn’t matter, not everyone who was born can sing or dance or be athletic or any other talent. This isn’t a talent it is a precious gift. Your purity. EVERYONE is born with this! Guys, girls, defected babies, you and me!

God did his part, giving you his gift of innocence. It is our job to protect it. 1 Corinthians 6:18 says “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.” Did you catch that? Against ourselves! God gave us purity so we may protect ourselves. While the world doesn’t hold any value on purity and abstinence, it is the greatest gift God had given any one of us!

2 Corinthians 7:1 says “Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates the body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence to for God.” I hope that you put as much value on purity as I do, not out of fear of pregnancies or diseases but out of reverence for God! Don’t make purity an obligation that “kills the fun” Not at all! Make purity the center of your life so you can enjoy your life as God intended!

    Right on the money.
    Satan packages non-purity, as an alluring gift that begats–joyful smiles, being loved beyond measure–desired by all–blah blah blah.
    As is typical of Satan’s promises–the end result is exactly the opposite of what we desire. Our sense of worth plummets, ‘scared-out-of-your- brains’ worries bounce about in our minds, sleep never comes–
    Okay, you get the picture.
    Purity rocks. The gift that keeps on giving.
    As usual–God is right.
