People lie for it. Cheat for it. Some even risk getting a disease and dying for it. It’s been known to make a grown man cry and a young girl’s knees to grow weak. So, what am I talking about?…

Sex.

For a few minutes of pleasure some will go to great lengths to satisfy horniness. And yes, I know it sounds coarse but isn’t that what it boils down to? Lust? Think about it…

Whether we acknowledge it or not, the fact remains many singles IN the church are doing “it.”

And it’s sad that the misappropriation of sex has caused there to be such a negative stigma surrounding such a beautiful act. Really, have you actually thought about what God’s original design for sex is?  Aside from procreation, sex is a time of worship and discovery between a HUSBAND and a WIFE.  But, here’s the thing, in order for us to ever get to the TRUE intent of sex, we first have to stop doing it the wrong way…

Now I know with that last sentence some of y’all just got off the bus, lol. And I’m sure some are thinking, “Whatever Nik! Don’t talk to me about what you’ve never had!” And I know. I get it.  But real talk, I’m a virgin not a eunuch, lol. Hello!

And I get where you’re coming from. So, maybe you haven’t made the best choices. Maybe sex is an area you struggle in. Maybe it seems it’s too late to change but did you know as long as God grants you another day, it’s never too late to start again? Did you know restoration could take place the moment you make a decision to stop sexing? Did you know where you fall short; God will empower you to stand?  And did you know when you choose to reserve sex for covenant; the sex you had in the world can’t hold a candle to the intimacy the undefiled marriage bed offers?

Think about it, most assume experience is the best teacher, but I’m inclined to believe the GOD of the experience is the best Teacher. Really, who else but our Creator is best qualified to teach us how to express intimacy?  And some can front if they want, but when I marry I’m not just becoming a student. No, I’m studying for my doctorate! LOL. Someone tap your neighbor and shout “Final Exam!” LOL. Whew, I promise I am too funny to ME!  But I digress…

I just want to encourage you to save yourself for marriage. Don’t cheat your future spouse of what rightfully belongs to them. Make a declaration to God and a vow to yourself that true love does wait and so will you. And then watch as God blesses you with double for your trouble. [Insert happy dance here]

Keep the faith family!

It’s worth it.

3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

 Roman 12:3

Beloved in this scripture, although the Apostle Paul expresses the gratitude from all that the people had done in their giving and use of their talents; he also discerned a prideful spirit, a pretense of humility and self-denial.

 This concerned him because Paul understood that all pride (when it seeks its own credit or profit) is sin. Beloved, when God bestows abundance of blessings and talents on us, it is not good for us to pretend that we are nothing and begin to do nothing with what God has given us, in order that we might do exploits for him.

  The word of God says, such as violate the covenant he (the devil) shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits (for God). Daniel 11:32

Beloved in the passage of scripture above, the Apostle Paul states in one translation of this Passage that, “Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God.”  No, God brings it all to you!

 Beloved let us allow this biblical truth to sink in our spirit that the “only  accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.” Roman 12:3
