“Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 NLT
I know you are faced with temptations for sex is highly promoted in movies, tv, music, billboards, and even classrooms. For you probably heard the saying in marketing that ‘sex sells’
So how do you not give in to your temptations?
It is that simple.
When we are in a compromising position, we try to ease our way out by our own wisdom but think of it like this, you are in a house, then the fire alarm goes off but you just sit there and listen to it, then you see the flames seep in to the room. You wouldn’t walk away slowly but you’d RUN and call for 911. This is how I see sexual temptations. The warning signs were there – the alarm, but we just sit there thinking it is harmless until the fire actually arises and we either give into the temptations – the fire, or we can run from it and call on God for help – 911.
