When marriage doesn’t immediately solve our problem wwe cling to the hope that, given enough time, marriage may yet free us.
Freedom from sexual sin rarely comes through marriage or the passage of time. So if you’re tired of sexual impurity and of the mediocre, distant relationship with God that results from it, quit waiting for marriage or some hormone drop to save the day.
God’s standard is that we avoid every hint of sexual immorality in our lives. If we followed this standard, we would never see sexual bondage.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place. (EPHESIANS 5:3-4, emphasis added)
