Pastor and counselor Deepak Reju passes along sound advice to wives who find out their husbands look at porn. Husbands need to be patient after confessing their porn addiction to their wives, and must give their wives time to come to a place of forgiveness and trust.

Deepak Reju, author of the devotional “Fighting for Purity,” reminds us that our identities are in Christ, and not in our sexuality. Each time a person consumes porn, they train their heart for desires that shouldn’t belong to them. Are your going to worship Christ, or the images on a screen? It’s a battle you can't afford to lose.
