Do you ponder about sex before marriage? Is it too difficult to stay a virgin at this day and age? Do your friends make fun of you for wanting to stay pure?
Unfortunately, many of us get our “sex talk” from people who don’t care about us (a.k.a porn industry). So I thought, I will address this issue biblically.
God’s very first command to man was – Have Sex.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.
~ Genesis 1:28
This is like commanding a very hungry man TO EAT.
Sex is a beautiful thing between a married man and his wife. God invented sex. God designed sex to be enjoyed in the safety of a marriage. HUMANS pervert sex by making it a taboo. Notice, certain European religion disallowing certain group of people from marrying, Going against the will of God has increased sexual immorality.
God cares about your Physical Relationships
The devil shows sex as something God is against. The devil makes you think that God does not want you to be happy by perverting sex. And this very restlessness makes the precious People NOT see the goodness Of God and fall into sexual immorality.
Married Christians should be open about sexuality with young people. Encouraging us about Godly physical relationships will make us treasure our virginity. It’s very interesting to note that the Hebrew word for virgin in the Bible is עלמה Alma which means diamonds.
God sees virgins as diamonds, don’t allow people or the devil to make you feel ashamed of it.
Have you failed? Have you had sex before marriage?
Don’t worry, there is now No Condemnation for those who have accepted Christ and his finished works on the cross. So start living a life of a virgin, precious in the eyes of God. Be a good example to the next generation to value their virginity.
