Dear Lord, I pray for thy spirit to be with me. I pray for wisdom and I pray for the spirit of discernment. I dedicate my time and efforts to you, and know through unwavering faith in thee that all obstacles and infirmities can be overcome.
Prepare and prevent
It is better to prepare and prevent than it is to repair and repent.
Control your Thoughts
The first seeds of immorality are always sown in the mind. You sow thoughts and reap acts, you sow acts and reap habits,you sow habits and reap character, and your character determines your eternal destiny. As a man thinketh, so is he.
How to Stay Clean
Be clean. Be virtuous in your thoughts and actions. Read good books. Never let your minds be subjected to pornography.Always pray for the power to resist temptation. Flee immediately from any situation you are in that is either causing you to sin or that may cause you to sin.
Chatting and Flirting
Men and women who are married sometimes flirt and tease with members of the opposite sex. So-called meeting or chatting often leads to emotional and physical attachment if continued. A good question to ask ourselves is this: Would my spouse be pleased if he or she knew I was doing this?
Repercussions of Immorality
Unchastity is the most damning of all evils. I know the laws of the land do not consider unchastity as serious as God does, nor punish as severely as God does, but that does not change its abominableness. Some would justify their immorality with the argument that restrictionsagainst it are merely religious rules, rules that are meaningless because in reality there is no God. This you will recognize is merely an untruthful rationalization designed to justify one’s carnal appetite, lust and passion. God’slaw is irrevocable. It applies to all, whether they believe in God or not.Immorality … always brings with it attendant remorse. A person cannot indulge in promiscuous relations without suffering ill effects from it. He cannot do wrong and feel right—it’s impossible. Anytime one breaks a low of God, he pays a penalty in heartache, in sadness, in remorse, in lack of self-respect, and he removes himself from contact with the Spirit of God.
Only Temporary Pleasure, Not Everlasting
There is no lasting happiness in immorality. There is no joy to be found in breaking the law of chastity. Just the opposite is true. There may be momentary pleasure. For a time it may seem like everything is wonderful. But quickly the relationship will sour. Guilt and shame will set in. We become fearful that our sins will be discovered. We must sneak and hide, lie and chat. Love begins to die. Bitterness, jealousy, anger, and even hate begin to grow. All of these are the natural results of sin and transgression.
Blessings of Chastity
When we obey the law of chastity and keep ourselves morally clean, we will experience the blessings of increased love and peace, greater trust and respect for our marital partners, deeper commitment to each other, and therefore a deep and significant sense of joy and happiness.
Why do people fall into the pit of sexual sin?
Most people fall into sexual sin in a misguided attempt to fulfill basic human needs. We all have a need to feel loved and worthwhile. We all seek to have joy and happiness in our lives. Knowing this, Satan often lures people into immorality by playing on their basic needs. He promises pleasure, happiness, and fulfillment.
