8 thoughts on “8 Encouragements For Those Doing Better with Sexual Purity

  1. Thank you for this post. It was an encouragement! I think our entertainment and friend choices play a major role in hindering the process of purity. If we spend time with people who are a bad influence or who often make perverse jokes and are not Biblical in their actions, behavior, thinking and speech, obviously it will lead us astray somehow. Our entertainment choices are SO important. If we fill our minds with music that promotes sex or violence, and if we watch TV shows or movies which show the same, how can we expect to walk in genuine repentance? We must realize (and write down to be able to refer back to) the sort of entertainment and thoughts or fantasy we dwell on before we end up giving in to masturbation, wanting to view porn, etc. And then as difficult as it may seem, we must renew our minds through the regular reading of God’s word (the Bible), get rid of cable television, throw away movies or CDs that we know cause us to stumble, and pursue genuine accountability. We must be honest with our accountability partners, seek Biblical counsel if need be, and even use the Covenant Eyes software on all our devices. (This is a HUGE help!)

    Please check out my blog which has articles, sermon notes, etc. on a variety of topics including: “God’s word”, “Purity”, “Quotes”, “About Masturbation”, “Self Esteem”, “Self-Injury”, “About Atheism”, “Homosexuality”, and “About Pornography.”

    • Emma – thanks for your additional suggestions. We can’t slack off in strengthening our purity strategies. We must continue to maintain, stretch and grow.

  2. Thank you for this – its very welcomed and needed! I plan to pass it on to my group of 14 guys. I always tell them;
    Praise God frequently, Pray unceasingly, Read the word daily, and be Obedient always.

  3. Friend of mine came up with this idea. Place a calendar privately in the rest room of his bedroom where his wife could see and place a star on each day he was blessed with victory and purity. Opened the door of communication between them and disclosed his journey = accountability with his wife. May not be for all … “if we walk in the light as He is in the light …”

  4. Thank you for yor words of great encouragement ! I tend to forget when I fail, that healing takes time and courage to keep working on the battle!

  5. Amen Great stuff.
    I would also say remember it is still a daily battle, remember where you came from , keep addind to your toolbox,, and adding your network.
