STAY IN PURITY
But as he who has called you is holy, so be holy in all manner of conduct. 1 PETER 1:15
One day, I saw a pastor officiating a wedding and the bride had half of her breast showing; I stood and said, There is an attack on the church; if there is no difference between the way a Christian dresses and the way the world dresses, then why are we in church? Jesus is coming to take his bride who is without spot or wrinkles (Eph. 5:27) so, why are all these wrinkles in the church? Jesus said, “I shall build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16:18). There are new converts among us who are trying to get out of the world, so why are you trying to be a gate of hell to them with your appearance? Apostle Paul even taught about people coming to church; he said, “Let the women dress decently” (1 Tim 2:9).
Those of you, who are virgins, be virgins till you marry; it will be a plus and a glory on you. If you messed up in your old life and now you have become a virgin in Christ, continue to stay virgin in Christ. If you are married, let the breast of your wife satisfy you at all times (Prov. 5:19) because when you are leaving as couples and one is committing adultery, God doesn`t see you as one again. The only ingredient you need to see God is holiness because without it, no one can see God (Heb. 12:14). The three most trusted weapons of the enemy are pride, money, and sex. So, stay pure because it will deliver you from many troubles.
• Pray and ask God to cleanse you with the blood of Jesus to live a pure and holy life. (Psalms 51:9)
• Righteousness is God`s responsibility but holiness is our responsibility.
• 1 Peter 1:16, 2 Peter 3:11
