I will have to say my mind concerning pre marital sex in relationships, I don’t care if it hurts you because the truth is a bitter pill to swallow in the world of lies. Why must sex be the basis of relationships? I know some of you will begin to give me some lame reasons for engaging in sex when you are not yet married. As a person, I believe relationships can survive and last long when sex is not involved because sex is the fulfilment of lust when it is done outside marriage and not love. Thankfully, there are still some people who are in GODLY relationships because they have made God to be at the centre of their relationships. They have the fear of God in their hearts and are also careful not to engage themselves in some things that can expose them into sexual immorality (fornication). Don’t tell me that you are having sex with him or her because of “love” because that’s not “True Love”. True love has reverence for God’s Word and His authority. It is quite a pity that the society is not helping the matter at all, what they tell you now is to have “safe sex”, who tells you that there is “safe sex” when God’s judgment is closer to you when you disobey His Word?? If you want to have sex why don’t you get married?? And please don’t tell me you have a relationship with God when you don’t even regard His Word concerning pre marital sex (fornication). Are you going to tell me that I don’t understand how you feel the urge to have sex? I do too, but I don’t allow that urge to pull me away from obeying God’s Word and it is normal for you to feel that way, but when you allow that urge to make you commit sin against God, then you have no excuse for your action. Joseph faced the same temptation you are presently facing but he knew God’s Word and never wanted to disobey Him because he had the fear of God. Listen to his words to Potiphar’s wife “How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”(Genesis 39:9b), if Joseph could do that and flee from committing the sin of pre marital sex(fornication), you also can if you allow God to be your Partner to keep yourself pure till marriage. Don’t be discouraged by what people say or do about premarital sex because you are different and unique. The world is looking for those who will uphold the standard of the Word of God. The world is looking for those who will take their stand firmly against pre marital sex(fornication). The world is looking for someone who will boldly say “Others may but I would not” when it comes to pre marital sex(fornication). Don’t get carried away by the world’s influence but let God’s Word and the fear of God be in you. God’s grace is readily available for you. You are still single but don’t be stupid!!! If you have been engaging in it, God is ready to forgive you and make you pure again, there is still a second chance for you, but do not postpone the day of your salvation because tomorrow maybe too late for you. May the Lord open your understanding to this solemn exhortation and warning.
Concerning those who are thinking whether to celebrate Christmas or not, the choice is yours to make. Don’t condemn those who are celebrating Christmas, and neither should those who are celebrating Christmas condemn those who are not celebrating it. Be fully persuaded in your mind and heart about it. Personal conviction of each person should be fully respected without any spiritual arrogance.
“Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? To his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand.
One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth everyday alike. LET EVERY MAN BE FULLY PERSUADED IN HIS OWN MIND.
He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the LORD; and he that regardeth not the day, to the LORD he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the LORD, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the LORD he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.” Romans 14:4-6.
I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance!!
Please don’t forget the main reason for the season: Jesus Christ!! The Saviour of the world!!!
