Common Sense Number 6: Don't Sacrifice Your Future on The Alter of Temporary Pleasure

Number 6: Don't Sacrifice Your Future on the Alter of Temporary Pleasure

How long does really good sex last anyway? And I mean really good sex? 30mins or less? That's it? Is it really worth it?

It's been an hour since I started writing this post and I'm yet to have a coherent writing. This is partly because I have so many things running through my head on this topic. Tomorrow is Monday, I need to get some sleep. So I'll just say the following. You cannot have sex and still be a virgin, it's not possible. There is pleasure in sin but the consequences are not pleasurable. There are some things we do now that appeal to us and we feel cool and the world makes it seem as if it's acceptable when in actual fact, it isn't.

There is a way a man touches a woman, that leaves an eternal mark on her (and vice versa). Why do you think married people cheat on their partners with their Exes? Most of the time it's because of the past sexual experiences they had with their Exes which seems unbreakable. Thunder will not strike you because you engaged in pre-marital sex (or sexual immoralities) however, the realities of such things are not any better.

At one point or another, we all fall into sin but what we do thereafter is the most important. God is always willing to take us back. Sin is not hurtful because it is wrong, it is wrong because it is hurtful.

Ladies, we need to know that the first touch on a woman was not the touch of man; it was the touch of God. By the time God was done creating Eve, Adam was still asleep. So Eve had an established and divine relationship with God before Adam woke up from his deep sleep.

Men, before getting married, you had slept with 40 girls and then you get married and cannot have children because of your "low sperm count". Well duh?? What did you expect? You had sown all your seeds at the wrong places and you ran out and your wife has to suffer the consequences.

Sexual immorality is a sin. Don't do it (If you are already doing it, it's never too late for a new beginning).

So, you don't enjoy committing sexual sins, but it is personal battle that you are consistently fighting, how do you overcome it? Sin and Lust are brother and Sister; they are ATMOSPHERE and OPPORTUNITY. How so? If you are lusting after someone, you have created an atmosphere for sin. Now, unless an opportunity presents itself, you will not act on your lustful desires. This means that you must make sure that both atmosphere and opportunity never meet. Don't put yourself in a position where sin will be inevitable. I know this is theory and it is easier said than done, but I'm telling you, it is possible, you can overcome your battle with sexual sins.

If you'll like to talk more on this topic or anything at that (Anonymously of course), e-mail me or leave prayer requests in the comment section below and I'll pray for you. I'm not in anyway perfect but I know the story of David, and I know restoration is always available.

Remember, You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is good for you. And even though "I am allowed to do anything," I must not become a slave to anything. - I Corin. 6:12. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Provs. 4:23.
