Before men experience victory over sexual sin, they’re hurting and confused.
Why can’t I win at this? they think.
As the fight wears on and the losses pile higher, we begin to doubt everything about ourselves, even our salvation. At best, we think that we’re deeply flawed. At worst, evil persons. We feel very alone, since men speak little of these things.
But we’re not alone. Many men have fallen into their own sexual pits.
These pitfalls happen easily since much of the sexual immortality in our society is so subtle we sometimes don’t recognize it for what it is.
Today I will be mindful that I am not alone in this battle. Others have fought and won. So can I.
