Purity


~Matthew 5:8 Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

It is God’s desire that we all be pure in heart. In so doing, we are able to see God through His Word and experience a close fellowship with Him.

Purity is not something that we hear much about nowadays. Today, fifty percent of teenagers have sex at least once. How very sad this is! 😥 What was meant to be something wonderful to wait for until you were married is made into something that is no longer a sacred event. Since the statistics are so high, one must wonder what the spiritual condition of these who have given in to temptation! Granted there are some who make mistakes, like King David. However, when he repented, he stayed on track in his spiritual walk.

~1 Corinthians 6:18-19 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? 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?

Where are you, teen girl? Have you thought about becoming one of the 50% who has had sex before marriage? Or have you already? Losing your purity for the sake of “keeping a boyfriend” or trying to be popular are not good reasons. Staying pure is God’s will for your life. To disobey God is sin and there will be repercussions to suffer: an unwanted baby, a sexually transmitted disease (STD), emotional problems, guilt, depression, etc. Any of these is not worth separating you from fellowship with God!

So what do you do now that you have sinned? Repentance is the key. Repentance means to turn away from that life and to do it no more! Don’t put yourself in situations where you will be alone with a boy and be tempted. Say no to temptation and  you won’t regret it. King David stayed loyal and true after he repented. There is no record of his ever sinning after his adultery with Bathsheba. That was true repentance.

~Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Then make a pledge that you will remain pure. To you, teen girl, who has remained pure, make the same pledge. Sign the pledge in front of your parents so that you will be more committed to keeping it. God wants to put you with the perfect Godly man – one who will love you and make you happy. Those are God’s thoughts toward you so why not wait for the one that He has chosen for you? 🙂
