How can I be sexually pure in this sexually impure world 2?

Hello sweet lady,
I trust that you are doing fine.

In my last post, I wrote about how you can be sexually pure in this sexually impure world.

Today, I will continue along that line.

4. Follow your passions


An idle mind, they say is the devil's workshop. I have found this adage to be true over and over again. If you notice, the period when you are less busy, or just whirling away time, are those periods when the sexual temptations are high; those are the times you notice that you are feeling somehow in your body; those are the times you are tempted to open a site you are not supposed to open.

That is why I say to you today to follow your passions. What are those dreams and desires burning in your heart? Start working on them. Get busy. Find a cause to volunteer for, find a group of people to pass a knowledge to, be concerned about your spiritual development. Maximize ways to serve God. Always have one thing or the other to do at every point in time. Don't just live life as it comes. Have plans for your life. Be very immersed in your passions that you don't even have the time to think stupid sexual thoughts.

5. Be accountable

Another way to stay sexually pure is to get accountability. Let everyone know what you stand for. Sexual purity is not something to be ashamed of or something to be shy about. It's something to boldly tell everyone around you.

6. Watch your circle of friends


Another adage says, 'show me your friend and I will tell you who you are'. From scriptures also, we see that the kind friendships we keep are very important.

Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’” (I Corinthians 15:28)

" He  who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.” (Proverbs 13:20)

"Stay away from the foolish man, because you will not find knowledge on his lips.” (Proverbs 14:7)

". . . rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . Have nothing to do with them.” (2 Timothy 3:4-5)


Ensure that your friends are people with a similar mindset as you. If you are friends with those that do not believe in being sexually pure, there's no way you will be able to keep your sexual purity.
Keep friends that will encourage your decision to be sexually pure by their attitudes, actions and speech.

7. Stay very careful

One thing you have to know is that anyone can fall into sexual sins. You are not spared. In fact, the more you decide to stay sexually pure, the more targeted you are. Sexual immorality is one way in which the devil attacks believers, especially those who are supposed to be sold out to God, and whose fall will greatly affect God's kingdom. Therefore, you need to be at alert. You can't afford to go just anywhere. You can't afford to watch any movie or even listen to any song. You have got to be very careful. Remember this scripture:

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8)

In being careful, you have got to partner with the Holy ghost. Always listen to the voice of the Spirit. 

8. Know that your body is the temple of God

"You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (I Corinthians 6:20).

Let this consciousness be in you. Your body is the temple of God. Your body does not belong to you. It belongs to God. The moment you received the life of Christ. Your spirit, soul and body became God's. Whenever you want to do anything with your body, always remember this.

9. Believe that it's possible to be sexually pure

Never fall for the lie that everyone is doing it. Not every one is doing it beloved. There are some 7000 people that have decided not to bow to Baal. As much as there's a lot of sexual perversion in our society today, also know that it's possible to keep yourself pure. You are not doomed to sexual impurity. You can take charge of your life and destiny. You can choose to be a different kind of lady or girl. You can determine your outcome and your experiences by your decisions. 
Today, begin with that decision, that will transcend into actions.

If you need anyone to talk to, or you need accountability, please kindly let me know.

I love you
Poise
