Abstaining from Sex Until Marriage (Part 5: IMPORTANCE vs. instant gratification)

Part 5 : IMPORTANCE  vs. Instant gratification

The purity of sex is important to God. If it is important to God, it should be important to us, not just for women but also for men. Sex is not just instant gratification.

Sex is created by God and was designed to be enjoyed within the sacred boundary of marriage and for the specific purpose of procreation. Sex and marriage go together, inseparable so to speak. Both are an expression of a lifetime commitment; and sex outside of marriage becomes a false expression of love.

Randy Alcorn said in his article "Guideline to Sexual Purity", "Sex is something everyone can abstain from--it is a strong desire, yes, but never an emergency, never a necessity.

The Bible does not say, "Sex never ends" but LOVE is. It is very very important that we learn to express love in different ways and sex is reserved only for married couple, because sex, honor and responsibility goes hand in hand. Sex create a powerful bonds between individuals. Sexual union is deep, not just a desire.

In Thessalonians 4:3-5 says "That you should abstain from sexual immorality, that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust."

So it is very important that you preserve your virginity, it will save you from any untoward problems if the relationship does jot work. Sex is a gift, a gift from God for the newly wed couple on their wedding night, unwrapping it before the designated time will just spoil the excitement of opening a gift.
