Made for More

It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. I Thessalonians 4:3-6

Sexual purity was never meant to be a burden but a blessing. Your body is a temple of God (I Cor. 6:19) and is meant for more than “passionate lust.” Because of Jesus you now have “control” and are not driven by desire – that is a great blessing! There is another thing to consider—sexual immorality always drags someone else down with you. It could be a partner; or it could be how pornography causes you to look at people differently (as objects and not as individuals with their own story). We live in a culture where immorality is open, May you and I remember that our citizenship is in heaven – we are defined by a different culture. Just to consider this elevates your significance—what a blessing!
