Sexual sin: it wants you

Sexual sin is a biggie crouching at the door, waiting to capture you. Do you believe you're immune to it? Do you believe it won't happen to you? Do you think it's not possible because you're so strong, or so wise, or so Godly?

Samson was the strongest man in the Bible, and he fell to sexual sin.

David was the Godliest man in the Bible, and he fell to sexual sin.

Solomon was the wisest man in the Bible, and he fell to sexual sin.

The Bible's warnings about sexual sin are clear. What are the protections we should take?

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20).

that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. (Ephesians 4:22-24).

And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it. (Luke 9:23-24).

It's very clear. Sexual sin wants you. You don't want it.

  1. Thanks for the ON TARGET, excellent word, DEEPLY rooted in THE WORD! Those are powerful Biblical examples and Biblical exhortations! HERE'S A FURTHER THOUGHT: The Biblical examples you gave of those FALLING were all men. I cannot think of a Biblical example of a godly woman who fell. There is, of course, Potiphar's wife, Genesis 38... and maybe other 'ungodly' ones I am not remembering... and there are the warnings about harlots or 'strange' women which are set forth in the Proverbs. HOWEVER, as we know... sexual sin is raging among BOTH men and women...AMONG PROFESSING BELIEVERS So, let us, 'ALL' indeed hear the Word of the LORD!
