We have countless churches filled with countless men encumbered by sexual sin, weakened by low-grade sexual fevers — men happy enough to go to Promises Keepers but too sickly to be promise keepers.
A spiritual battle for purity is going on in every heart and soul. The costs are real. Obedience is hard, requiring humility and meekness, very rare elements indeed.
James, a respected teen in his youth group, refused to promise to stay sexually pure when pressed to do so. “There are too many unforeseen situations out there for me to make such a promise,” he said. James has stopped short. Have you?
Today I will choose to walk in obedience, humility and meekness. I will stay sexually pure even when the spiritual battle is raging.
