Truth or spam

"Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourself to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, wether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)? Romans 6:16

 I remember sitting in a front porch swing at the house of some friends when we were teens. We talked about many things- the things that teen girls talk about- including- well- you know- sex.

My friend told us what her Daddy said about it:

 "Don't start the fire if you can't feed the flame".

 There is a reason for that. God designed sex for marriage so that a husband and wife could become "one flesh". (Genesis 2:24) So that they would bind together- forever.

 "Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it". Psalms 127:1

 Sex is for the fireplace of a house-  the heart of a home that keeps it safe and warm.
A guy will tell a girl anything to get sex- girls are turned on by what they hear. Guys are turned on by what the see. Just remember, if a fire is built in any other part of the house other than the fireplace- it will burn the house down.

 We honor God by honoring our bodies and one day the perfect mate will come along when the time is right. In the meanwhile just remember to keep the fire in the fireplace and if you get turned on by what a guy says to you or how a girl dresses and acts it may be the truth- or it may be spam. 

 Only time will tell.

 This is for those who wait.

Prayer: Dear Father, please help me to honor You with my body because You know what's best for Me. I love you. In Jesus Name, Amen.

In Christ

  1. Great job Cheryl! Sex is a beautiful thing between a husband and wife on their wedding night. Purity is the VERY BEST priceless present one can give their husband or wife! However if you have messed up Jesus loves you and will forgive you if you ask. It is also important to walk on and forgive yourself! Jesus loves us all! Pamela Britt Malone
