AVOID SEX PLEASE

Sex is Dangerous especially if you are Single. Avoid Sex. It is Demonic. It is Unholy, ungodly and Evil. Sex was meant for Married Couples. Beware, lest you contact STDs, HIV/AIDs etc.

  1. Find out what pleases the Lord . This is a

command straight out of Ephesians 5:10, and

is part of what it means to live a life worthy

of our calling as Christians, and part of what

it means to live a life of love, just as Christ

loved us.

  1. Find out what God’s will for your life is. 1

Thessalonians 4:3-5 says, “It is God’s will that

you should be sanctified: that you should avoid

sexual immorality; that each of you should learn

to control his own body in a way that is holy and

honorable, not in passionate lust like the

heathen, who do not know God;” It doesn’t get

much clearer than that!

  1. The battle begins in the mind. You need to

know what God says about sex and trust

what God says about sex. You need to be

careful what you fill your minds with.

Imagination is often the hot-bed where sin is

hatched. Martin Luther once said about

sexual desires, “You can’t stop birds from

flying over your head, but you can stop them

from making nests in your hair.”

  1. Pray (It is a spiritual battle too). Depend on

God, on the power of His Holy Spirit to

strengthen you in this battle. (Matthew 6:13;

2 Timothy 2:22; James 5:16)

  1. Don’t put yourself in situations where you

will be easily tempted. There is little point

praying that God would not lead you into

temptation, then walking straight into a

tempting situation.

  1. Remember God is watching. You are never

completely out of sight. Someone can always

see you. Ya! You can’t hide. Be truthful to yourself! Flee!

  1. Wield the axe. Jesus says in Matthew 5, if

your eye or hand causes you to sin, gouge

them out and throw them away, because

eternal life is at stake. So if the internet,

magazines, TV, Pornography or peer groups are causing

you to sin; wield the axe. Chop away those

things that tempt you.

  1. Talk about sex (accountability) . You can’t

fight this alone. You need God’s help and you

need help from God’s people too. Don’t always talk about sex wrongly, you may be sexually arouse!

  1. You are not alone. It can be helpful to know

you are not the only person who has ever

been tempted this way. “No temptation has

seized you except what is common to man” (1

Corinthians 10:13a)

  1. You CAN resist, Ya. “God is faithful; He will not let

you be tempted beyond what you can bear” (1

Corinthians 10:13b).

  1. Know that God provides a way out. “But when

you are tempted, he will also provide a way out

so that you can stand up under it” (1

Corinthians 10:13c).

  1. Count yourself dead to sin and alive to God.

Christians are people who have died to sin

(knowing that sin leads to death), and now

live for God and righteousness, knowing that

this leads to eternal life (Romans 6:11-14).

  1. Remember the cross. Jesus died for our sins,

including our sexual sins.

  1. Remember Jesus is coming back. We will all

have to give an account for our lives, even

our sex life.

  1. Memorise Scripture. When Jesus was

tempted in the desert, he fired Scripture back

at the devil (Matthew 4:1-11). Having God’s

Word in the forefront of your mind can help

you too.

  1. Weariness and sadness often leads to sin.

Learn to know yourself. Know when you are

weak and susceptible to temptation.

  1. Struggling is a good sign. Keep fighting and

don’t give in.

  1. Be careful what you wear. Modesty is good

for you and good for others too.

  1. Forgiveness is available. If you sin sexually

you can still be forgiven, such is the power of

the cross of Christ. So repent, turn back to

God and live for Him.
