So if someone’s trying to seduce you, run: Flee from sexual immorality.

Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

Admit your feelings are natural, but know that that doesn’t make it right to give in to temptation.

God’s word talks about his perfect love driving out fear (1 John ).

I think the love of Jesus is the only thing that can calm my fears about remaining single.

When David turns back to God after committing adultery with Bathsheba, he pours out his feelings and says, “Against you, you only, have I sinned” (Ps 51:4). If that happens, repent—turn away from your sin and take comfort in the fact that you have been saved by grace, not works.

Thinking about Jesus when you’re in a tempting situation is a powerful incentive to keep yourself pure. You may still feel bad about your sin, but remember Psalm 1: “[A]s far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us”.

The other day, I received a text message from a non-Christian friend of mine. I think you’re really sexy & intelligent, and I think sex before marriage is fine. Do you want to catch up for lunch or dinner this week? When I recovered, I messaged back, apologizing if I had done anything to give him the idea I wanted to be anything more than friends.

I wasn’t interested in a romantic relationship with this particular non-Christian man. I’d spent years as a youth group leader telling teenage girls not to have sex before marriage and not to date or marry non-Christians.

And like any sin, if you sin sexually, you need to flee to the cross.

I’ve always prided myself on being sexually moral; all I’ve ever done is kiss a guy when I was a teenager.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?

You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. (1 Cor -20) Recognize the one you’re sinning against: God.

I’m speaking from my experience of managing to stay sexually pure; it’s not meant to be a legalistic list of dos or don’ts.
