Try turning on the TV for more than 30 seconds without seeing a commercial that is sexual in nature or without seeing a TV show that doesn’t have the main characters sleeping around. TV makes sex seem amazing, like it is so great, and we all need to get out there and just starting doing it.
Now in all fairness, sex is amazing. Its fun, and enjoyable. However, the way that most people are using sex today is totally wrong. Sex is meant to be used in one way…marriage. People will tell you that is old fashioned, not possible any more. Don’t believe them for a second.
I have never met a person that waited to have sex until they were married that has regretted it. NOT ONE!! Sex was designed by God as a gift, to be used in a marriage relationship. God wants you to have fun and to enjoy sex…but he asks that you wait until marriage.
Why do you think that is? Is God trying to keep you from having fun? Is he just too old fashioned and asking too much of us to wait? God created sex, and he knows the best way for us to use it. Think of it this way, if you wanted to know how to use your computer, where would you go to find out how? You might start by going to the website of the person that made the computer. You’d start by going to the person that made it to find out how to get it working/how to use it. In the same way, we should go to God to find out the right way to use sex.
God created sex for us to enjoy, but within the boundary of marriage. He’s not trying to keep you from having fun, he’s trying to protect you from heartache, STD’s, and pregnancy.
I encourage you to live your life sexually pure…with God’s help you can do it!
