The Tragedy of An Illicit Sex Affair (2)

One of the tragedies of life is not only ignorance but to deliberately violate divine laws at the expense of one's life. 
.
There's no sexual relationship before or outside marriage that doesn't leave you without an effect but it is quite unfortunate that many only see the pleasure and not what is at stake.
.
For every sexual relationship you have before or outside marriage, you're exposing yourself to destruction. God frowns at the defilement of the marriage bed and it is lack of understanding to love what God hates.
.
Do you know what happens for every illicit sexual activities you have when you're not married or you do it outside your marriage? 
.
"For by means of a whorish woman, a man is brought to a piece of bread" - Proverbs 6:26a
.
Something is inevitably reduced. How can a man or woman be reduced to a piece of bread when they're alive? It shows that something that's not physical will be reduced in their life. No man goes in to another man's wife (whether you're a single or a married, she's not yours if you're not married to her) and comes back the same. The same goes for the woman. 
.
Do you know what is reduced? 
.
1. God's blessing upon your life is reduced gradually to a piece of bread. God blessed man to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue and have dominion. This spiritual mystery is beyond sexual reproduction. 
.
Evil men or women reduces people's virtues or glories through illicit sex. In weird cases, a diabolic man's posterity increases when he has sex with any woman. This is why you must be careful of pulling down your skirts or trousers at every sexual advances or lust. The same goes for young men. That sugar mummy you have is reducing something in you which money cannot buy but compensating you with money so that it would appear as if you're enjoying and that you're not losing anything. 
.
The more you engage in illicit sexual affair, the more your life becomes empty. The more His blessings upon your life becomes a curse. That you do not feel it doesn't mean nothing is happening. 
.
2. Your strength dissipates gradually 
.
Premarital or extramarital sex is not just fun, it reduces your strength. And when I talk about strength, it's not just physical but mental and spiritual. The glory of young men (and women) is in their strength.
.
Mental strength talks about your ability to think creatively and maintain undisturbed balance and a right frame of mind for a longer period of time over a course. One of the reasons why ancient kings made their servants eunuch is so that they can concentrate on the task they're assigned to without having to chase women. 
.
Spiritually, having an unrepentant sexual and sinful life cannot enable you to worship God the way you ought to or serve Him acceptably. It doesn't matter if the anointing flows regardless of your sinful act; what matters is the approval of your work.
.
God doesn't accept a service that stems out from a defiled temple. It doesn't matter if the temple is well decorated externally, what matters is the internal condition. If you're not holy from within, external cleanliness is an abomination before God. 
.
3. It reduces your dignity 
.
There's a dignity that comes with being sexually pure. There's a sense of worth or pride that everyone has when they're celibate. But when you begin to dissipate your sexual urge through illicit sexual activities, you're losing it gradually till you no longer cherish it.
.
A man or woman who has engaged in sex before or outside marriage can't be proud to declare it or confidently encourage someone else to keep it. Even if they do, their conscience would prick them.
.
You can still restore whatever that has been reduced in your life if you desist from premarital or extramarital sex. God is merciful to forgive you but His forgiveness won't take away the consequences of your past sexual life but He's able to give you a fresh start. 
.
See, a whorish woman is not just a prostitute, she's someone that compromise or violates God's word for her own sexual desire. Men too can be a whore (sexually promiscuous).
.
You can't afford to lose God's blessings upon your life life. It's too dangerous to dispense your mental and spiritual energies on illicit sexual activities. How old are you that you're getting old mentally, physically and spiritually? Why should you destroy your dignity because of those opportunities to have sex? 
.
You have nothing to lose if you abstain from sex till marriage. Let no one deceive you - friends, media or some parents who are warped up in their thinking. Renew your commitment with God and stay clear of everything that could pose a threat to your sexual purity.
.
It's a great tragedy for you to become an Ichabod in the prime of your youth and to be old while you're still young in life.
