I HAVE BEEN BOUGHT!
Growing up in today’s society is hard to live a holy or clean life. Society tells the guys to go out and have sex with girls to prove your manhood. Women are only given attention when they are half naked or wearing something revealing. Homosexuality and lesbianism is now “normal” and one must give people their “rights” to date who they please.
Our world is blind by the god of this world, the devil. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
Times are extremely hard and people are becoming slaves to acceptance. Doing illegal or sinful things to fit in. Ladies having sex to keep the man they “love”, and men not respecting women anymore. We all must realize that nothing in this world can satisfy us! We can sleep around, party all day, smoke and drink, even have “racks”, but at the end of the day are we fulfilled? NO! How would I know? It’s evident when after it is all done, we still want more.
Temporary pleasures can never fill the void in our lives that were made for God!
Christians need to stop being lukewarm and the world needs to see that we are “bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:20). Jesus came to this Earth to redeem us, buy us back! We were all on our way to a burning Hell because of our sins. Jesus came so that we could find true life in him!
Jesus came to save us from Hell, so the bible said “glorify God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:20)! He wants us to know that our bodies were made for him. Sex is a gift by God as our wedding present. Not for us to experiment in. Respect God!
Ladies, do not turn your body into a public playground, your body is the temple of God! Men, do not be ashamed to be a virgin or to be celibate, real women respect that!
You have to realize that, you were bought! No need to be deep, you understand this. You are not your own.
Because you are bought:
- God expects you to live your life for Him, and Him alone. Does that mean God is a cruel slave master and we are his puppets? No way! We have our minds conditioned in the wrong manner and fail to realize that sin is deceitful. It surely satisfies and feels good, but only temporarily! The bible states: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. (Psalms 16:11). We are most fulfilled when we are in the presence of God!
- You are expected to respect your body! The spirit of God now dwells inside of you. He didn’t have to choose us, but he showed love and grace towards us. The least we can do is honor Him!
Do not settle for less than what you deserve, because you will get less than what you settled for. Honor God with your body. With your purity. With your entire life! He requires, and expects more! God bless!
