Grace For Sexual Purity – By Pastor Linus Ochai

Text: Romans 11:22, 1Thessalonians 4:1-8.

You continually enjoy God’s goodness when you continually cooperate in
the manner that is good.

God can still disconnect the righteous.

God has redeemed us from lawless deeds (Titus 2:11-15).

There is a way to walk and to please God. After all prayers, everybody
has a right to possess his vessel (body) in sanctification and honour.
When people get involved in sexual immorality, they do not know God. You
cannot truly know God and intentionally go into immorality
(1Thessalonians 4:1-8).

You cannot carry a coal of fire and not be burnt (Proverbs 6:23-32).

Sexual immorality is derived from the greek word ‘porneia’. It is sin
because sex is strictly reserved for the marriage institution (Gen 2:24,
1Cor 7:2).

Sexual immorality includes, sexual relationship
before marriage and wrong sexual relations among married people
(Proverbs 9:13-18).

Lustful passions are sexual desires that
dominate the thought of some people -pornography, masturbation,
homosexuality. God says because they have a reprobate heart, He would
give them up. God has already abandoned them. But there is a hope for
restoration if they abandon these ways. God destroyed an entire nation
because of homosexuality.

What is Grace?

It is the influence
of the life of God operating in the life of a believer to regenerate
him. God has already given you the strength to say NO. Sexual purity is
the pursuit of personal holiness in an individual’s sexual life. It is
about pleasing God in our bodies and our emotions.
How Do We Enforce Sexual Purity?

1. The knowledge of God. Know Him, know His power. As you get intimate
with God, you get to know His power and His patience. You need to excel
in your intimacy with God. You need self improvement spiritually. You
need to know that God is the source of true, genuine and lasting
pleasure.

Activate the grace of God by simply saying NO to immorality
(Philippians 1:20, 2:13, 1Corinthians 6:18-20).
2. Know the Lord’s patience.
3. Avoid every appearance of evil. Protect yourself, be wise.
4. Choose the right company. Identify God fearing people as your friends.
5. Do not keep Intimate friendship with unbelievers or any other person
apart from your spouse. Keep fellowship with brethren to be preserved
in purity and godliness.

In the event you have been overtaken in
the sin of sexual immorality, there is hope for you. Repent and the
grace of God is available to redeem you from every work of flesh and
impurity (1John1:8).

Why Sexual Purity?
1. It is the will of God.
2. It gives you the opportunity to please God.
3, It is honorable.
4. It demonstrates the love of God in your heart for others.
5. It prevents the vengeance of man.
6. And most importantly, to avoid the wrath of God.
