25 Helpful Tips on How To Remain Sexually Pure In A Corrupt World

1. You can’t be sexually pure when you keep the company of friends who are sexually lose. Some of their habit would someday rub off on you.
.
2. Until you have won the battle against impure thoughts (lust), you’ll never be able to live a sexually pure life.
.
3. The first look is not a sin but the second look becomes sinful when you imagine how he or she’d look when naked.
.
4. You can’t wear a blindfold because everything you see around you tends to pollute one’s thought but you can control what you fix your gaze on.
.
5. One step to living a sexually pure life is to be disciplined. Watch what you see. Screen what you hear, be mindful of what you do and control what your mind ponders on.
.
6. The natural man can’t be sexually pure because he has a corrupted nature. Strive to be born of God so that you can have His nature that overcomes sin.
.
7. The end point of all sexual sin starts with your mind. If it is not conceived in your mind your body can’t implement it.
.
8. What you daily feed your mind with is capable of defining the kind of thought you’d have, whether pure or impure.
.
9. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” – (Philip. 4:8, NIV).
.
10. The word of God is the only means through which your thoughts can become pure. The more you read and meditate in it, the more it converts your soul.
.
11. Being sexually pure doesn’t stop with the mind alone, your body must also be clean from all sexual activities that could pollute your thoughts – no kissing, petting, caressing, erotic conversations, premarital sex or purposeless visit with the opposite sex.
.
12. That the world seem to be sexually corrupt and inclined doesn’t mean you have to conform your life to their standard.
.
13. What you set your affection to defines the kind of thoughts you’d nurse – to seek sexual pleasure or to pursue godly purpose.

14. What gives a soap its ability to remove stains is because of its ingredients. You can only live a sexually pure life when God’s nature has been ingrained into you, you possess His spirit and you renew your mind daily with His word.
.
15. It’s not a crime for sexual thoughts to cross your mind, you’re human but immediately unsettle the thought by thinking on what’s pure – the word of God.
.
16. How often you renew your mind in God’s word determines the level of purity you have in you. You don’t have to cram the whole Bible but one verse is enough to discard impure thoughts.
.
17. To live a sexually pure life is to believe it’s possible. That the whole world seem to be pollute doesn’t mean purity isn’t attainable or difficult.
.
18. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” – (Romans 12:1-2, NIV)
.
19. Doing the same wrong thing every time can’t get you the right thing. Every wrong sexual habits must be stopped otherwise you won’t live a pure life.
.
20. The environment you are has a part to play in determining your sexual purity. If you cannot change your external environment, change the one within.
.
21. “Guard your heart more than anything else, because the source of your life flows from it” – (Proverbs 4:23, GW)
.
22. What you see, what you hear, what you feel and what you think about gain access into your heart. If you do not guard them they’ll lead you into a sexually loose life.
.
23. It is better not to do it once than to fight to stop it thereafter. Don’t feed your mind with sexually polluting materials. Don’t engage in ‘just’ kissing, petting, caressing, erotic conversations or sharing nude pictures; it’s sometimes not easy to stop it once the fire starts burning.
.
24. Your habit, thought, character and perception about life can’t be pure (clean) when you heart is immoral…for it is what comes from the heart that defiles the life of a man.
.
25. Do you want a pure heart so that you can live a holy life (sexually pure life)? Cry out to God now like David did, “God, create a pure heart in me, and make my spirit strong again” – (Psalm 51:10, ERV).
