Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus Phil 2:5
Staying sexually pure is just one of the areas in which we are to Obey God. Sexual purity means keeping your sexual sanctity. To stay sexually pure means to be sexually flawless, clean, unsullied, spotless, undefiled, untainted, or immaculate.
There is a Yoruba adage that says “what you will not eat, don’t bother smelling it”
You must be determined to stay pure because there are so many things or people that will want to make you fall.
Keep The Right Association
Keep good and godly friends, stay glued to the right people. Your friends should be people that share the same values as you. People who are not willing to compromise, people that will encourage you not discourage you. Stay away from people who are not willing to help you grow, stay away from people who do not believe that the “grace of God is sufficient for them”, you don’t need friends that think staying pure till marriage is old school stuff.
Guard the Gates To Your Mind
Be mindful of what you think about, listen to and watch because it will become part of you. You grow on what you feed your mind with! Be intentional about how you spend your time, don’t go and be listening to songs or watching movies that will make you to fall back into your previous bad habits. Listen to music and discussions that will lift your spirit not your body!
Prioritize God’s Word
Study and mediate on the Word often and attend bible study. ‘For once you were full of darkness, but know you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! Eph 5:8
Be determined, pray for God’s grace and don’t take God’s grace for granted.
Get to work, an idle mind is the devil’s workshop, keep yourself occupied, serve God, take time to discover yourself, read meaningful books, volunteer!
YES YOU CAN!
