Overcoming Sexual Immorality II

Overcoming Sexual Immorality Part 1

1 Corinthians 3:18, “Let no man deceive himself if any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let become a fool, that he may be wise”

In other word, the guy that says he’s smart, the one that told you that it’s alright to have sex outside marriage, he said if he’s smart in this world, let him become a fool then he might be close to being wise, because he’s an idiot as far as his education in this world is concern when he goes against God!

1 Corinthians 3: 19, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness”

Ladies and Gentlemen, the first thing you got to first start doing is that you got to stop taking counsel from ungodly people.

I don’t care how many degrees they have, I don’t care how much money they have, I don’t care how many times they come television- you’ve got to stop taking counsels from ungodly people. don’t you let ungodly people tell you it is okay for you to have sex outside marriage.

Do you know how big of a rick that is right now? One out of four people got some STDs, do you know how risky that is?

Sometimes you can be a carrier that can spread the disease without it first manifesting in you right now! You’re playing with dynamite, ladies and gentlemen.

We’ve got to honor our bodies- it’s not okay to have sex outside marriage. It has been proven.

(Don’t say, “Well married people get the disease- well they are married). It’s because they are still having sex outside marriage.

The whole plan is that you have sex in marriage, so that you don’t have to worry about what’s going outside. The deal is that once you make a commitment to marry that person, that’s the only one you are going to be doing things with, that person you are married to, that’s the deal. And if you stick to that marriage covenant, you won’t have to worry about anything else; because you aren’t playing with nobody else except the one you have the right to play with!

Worldly wisdom is foolish! What the world would have been like if we’d kept this agreement, this commandments.

Now let’s see what the bible says, because I am going to take you through a testimony of mine, when I just got born again, I did not what fornication was all about

1 Corinthians 6:13, “Meats for the belly and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord and the Lord for the body”

In the Amplified version it says, “Food (is intended) for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will finally end (the functions of) both and bring them to nothing. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but (is intended) for the Lord, and the Lord (is intended) for the body (to save, sanctify, and raise it again)

Now ladies and gentlemen I was on my first bible study class, a week after I got born-again, in fact that’s where I first met my wife. And we were having a session and for some reasons or the other, this word “fornication” showed up.

Now I’d never heard of the word before and so I raised my hands and asked, “What’s fornication?” and they said, that’s having sex without being married or married and having sex outside the marriage.

I was shocked!

I said, “What?” I said “What’s wrong with that?” “What’s wrong with having sex outside the marriage?”

See it alerts me so, because no one else had ever told me that there was a problem with having sex outside the marriage. My own daddy encouraged me, he said “just make sure you have some protections”, but in those days what protection means is not protection against diseases, it means don’t bring babies into the world.
