Recently, I’ve noticed a trend of celebrities voicing their decision to abstain from sex until marriage.
Their decisions to do so range from personal, spiritual, and moral. The conversation about saving sex for marriage has certainly increased over the past few months, which is why we should take some time to remind ourselves that purity is more than saving sex for marriage. A plain definition of purity means to be "free from anything of a different, inferior or contaminating kind."For the Christian, purity is keeping anything out of our life that is not of God.
QUESTION: I am 30 years old and have been married and divorced twice.
I have one son from my first marriage and although I never wanted to be a divorcee, that is where I am for the second time.
Purity is to live a life within the purpose God designed us for.I’ve developed the following material and presented it to many young people and their parents over many years.When my now married daughters were teenagers, I honed it further for sharing and discussion with them and the young men who asked to date them.SEE ALSO: When Your Dream is the Last Thing Your Spouse Wants Purity does not only include what we actually do (or don't do) but also what we think, how we behave, our will and desires. Jesus makes it clear that purity is not a long list of do’s and don’ts but actually goes far beyond what our actions can accomplish.Purity includes not only our body but also our mind, heart and soul. To be pure we need to not only do good but actually good.
