Let it Not Be Named Among You

Ephesians 5:3

The word fornication in the Greek is porneia. (It’s where we get the word pornography) Here the word is used of illicit sexual intercourse. It also includes adultery – which Jesus says can happen when we look at a female with lust in our hearts.

Statistics say that up to 60% of Christian men are viewing pornography. For me, the problem is not just pornography, but the desire to see. I wonder what the statistics would be of Christian men who don’t watch porn but lust after women in general…hmmm?

Make No Provision

Romans 13:14

Since I am clothed with the righteousness of Christ, why then would I choose to willfully sin against Him? Why would I choose what is less fulfilling and brings pain and strain to my relationship with God and my wife?

The answer…I’m not willing to do that because He is enough – and so is my wife!

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
