Davidisms: God Desires Sexual Purity, Part 1

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality” (1 Thessalonians 4:3).

God desires sexual purity in his people. His commands for purity are found throughout his Word.

What is sexual purity from Jesus and his Word? Sex only within the parameters of a relationship between a married man and woman.

Why is sexual purity so important to God?

Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit within us (1 Corinthians 6:19). Therefore, as followers of Christ, we are commanded to “put to death” immorality of all kinds, including sexual (Colossians 3:5).

Parents, we must teach this biblical truth to our children. How?

My wife and I came up with a safeguard phrase we ingrained in our children’s minds. A rule to be able to follow God’s expectation of sexual purity.

Here it is: Nothing below the neck. Simple. Concise. They have never forgotten it.

Yes, in our culture, this is not a popular message. But it’s God’s undeniable biblical design for human sexuality.

And always remember: Followers of Jesus live to please him, not people.

When dating, nothing below the neck!

It’s an important lesson for parents to teach to their children. And all of Jesus’s disciples to follow.
