Renowned gospel singer Nathaniel Bassey, In his recent post on social media shared a photo captioned ‘No Marriage No Sex’.
‘This isn’t old school.
Rather, it’s a sound biblical doctrine‘ He said, as he encourages Parents to tell their children, Pastors tell their congregation. Fiancées to their Fiancé, and vise-versa.
SEX AND WORSHIP ; ‘There’s is a connection between sexual purity and a healthy “life of worship and time of worship”. First, worship has to be in the beauty of Holiness, that is, holiness of heart, mind and body. In motive and action, because God is Holy.
That’s the reason one of the biggest hinderances to true worship is sexual immorality.
You must understand that a sexual activity is in itself an act of worship. In fact, it is the earthly parallel of our spiritual and highest form of relationship with God, worship.
Many of you would agree with me on this, if you are a Christian, I mean, A born again Christian, who loves God and eschews evil, you would have noticed that worshipping God becomes difficult after you fall into a sexual sin.
Because sexual sin is one that not only involves your body, but you mind and spirit.
In fact, you may have cried and repented, and God being who He is will always forgive, but you would notice having that sweet fellowship and communion becomes a struggle for some time.
I’m talking of sincere lovers of God who have made mistakes or have struggles in this area, and battling to be free.
Have you ever wondered why the scripture urges us to FLEE when it comes to sexual sins? The reason is not far fetched.
But here is the good news, there is a way out. JESUS. The blood of Jesus is available to set us free. And as we make a choice to live in holiness, God’s grace comes to strengthen. But we must make a choice and decision as free moral agents. Shalom“
