A man once said to D.L. Moody, “The world has not yet seen what God can do with a man fully devoted to Him.” Moody responded, “I am that man!” Unlike Moody, young men today are spending so much of their spiritual energy fighting off sexual fevers. What if your son were kept free from this draining fever in the first place, and all of his spiritual energy could be spent on God’s call in His kingdom?
It can be done. The world has not yet seen what God can do with an army of young men free of sexual fevers. If you’re a father, have you worked hard enough to keep your son pure so that he might qualify for such an army? Can you yourself answer as Moody did, I am that man”?
When your son questions what he should watch, what he should do with the pornography other boys show him, or what he should do when that cute girl gets him alone and starts unbuttoning her blouse, will anyone be speaking against it? It won’t be his friends. Your voice had better be loud and crystal clear because it will probably be the only one whispering, “Flee immortality, son.” Your example must be the argument opposing temptation.
