Oftentimes, we need to ask God to throw us a lifeline. Here’s what the Bible tells us. Galatians 6:7-8. “Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his own sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction and the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life”.
Here’s what God is saying, in a nutshell, about our sexuality. He’s saying, “Wait. Obey My Word because I want to spare you from the pain, the suffering, the separation, the alienation that premarital sex causes”. God wants to save you from the spiritual consequences of sexual sin. There are spiritual consequences. That’s why God’s Word says in Isaiah 59:2, “Your sin has separated you from God”. In other words, when I sin, when I sin sexually, a wedge is driven between myself and God. We’re separated from Him. In fact, the psalmist writes in Psalm 66:18, “If I have cherished sin in my heart, the Lord will not listen to my prayers”.
Talk to a believer, talk to a Christian who’s involved in sexual sin and they all say the same thing – “There were thrills, chills, passion, but then my prayers didn’t have any power. I felt dirty. I felt embarrassed. I felt exposed. Something was wrong”. You see, if you don’t deal with sexual sin, sexual sin can cause what I call the domino effect to take place in your life spiritually. Remember Johnny Carson ? He used to have guys on there who would break the Guinness Book of World Records with the domino deal.
hey would line up millions of dominos and start it and people would go and finally the last domino would fall and everyone would stand to their feet, “Yes! The world record in dominos!”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young
