I'll Wait For You by Moriah Peters
(After you've read the passage at the top of this post, answer these questions. You can write them down in your Little Faith Book if you'd like!)
A girl recently sent this question to me:
I want to stay pure, and my friends say they do but I am scared. It seems whenever there's a guy they can push you into doing things and I think I just want to know how far is too far. It's hard because they'll always say "it's not sex" but I just want clarification because it's something that many of my friends and myself are struggling with.
Purity is more than just saving sex for marriage. As daughters of the King, we are called to be pure in what we think, what we watch, how we talk and how we act. If we stumble upon any type of sexual temptation, whether it's on the Internet or with a boy, God wants us to sprint away as fast as our legs can carry us! We shouldn't have to worry about going too far—we should be 100 miles away before "too far" is even thought about.
Run from sexual sin!" -1 Corinthians 6:18a
1 Corinthians 6:20 tells us to honor God with our bodies. (After all, His Spirit lives inside of us!) Is pushing the limits with a boy honoring to God? Is that really picking up our skirts and fleeing from sexual sin?
Any sexual activity outside of marriage is too far. Matthew 5:28 says, "But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart." That goes for us ladies, too. Even thinking about a guy in a sexual way is a sin in God's eyes.
Let's take a look at Pinocchio. Whenever he went against his creator, Geppetto, he had pretty big problems in his life. In the same way, any step that we take away from purity is a step away from our Creator.
Now, you see, the world is full of temptations. They're the wrong things that seem right at the time." -Jiminy Cricket
Instead of letting our conscience guide us as Jiminy Cricket suggests, let's look to the Bible and let God guide us to make pure decisions in our mind and body.
