Everthing Runs Better on Pure

Okay. Define sexual purity.

Pretty tough isn’t it?

Where are the lines that separate purity from impurity? I saw an add for water that was 99 percent pure. It made me wonder about the 1 percent that wasn’t. I mean, if it is ebola, then I have a serious problem.

Hebrews 10 talks about purity.

22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Now I know it is not just talking about sex, but we can at least agree that sex is included, right?

Imagine your relationships if you could just eliminate a guilty conscience. The truth is, that I have to learn to take every thought captive. Purity is one of the most difficult things to maintain because it is absolute.

Here is what I know for sure. The person who sets his mind on remaining 99.9 percent pure (sexually speaking) is bound to live life at a 87.4 percent purity level. The person who lives with the idea that they will maintain 75% purity is more likey to live closer to the 50% mark. God has set the highest standard ever. 100% pure. Think that’s too hard? Just imagine drinking a coke that is 56.8 % pure.

Questions to ask yourself: 1. What is your purity percentage goal for this year?
All of High School? College? Until you get married?

  1. Would you say that your viewing and listening habits will help you or hurt you reaching your goals?

  2. What do you think God’s best for your life is?

  3. Write down the names of three people that will help spur you to your ideal purity percentage?
