The High Cost Of Sexual Purity (Guard Your Heart)

February 9, 2020

The internet brings pornography to anyone who wants it. This inflames desires and leads to sexual addictions—a good reason why the Bible tells us to guard our hearts. Let’s explore the mind of an addict and recognize the steps we should take to be free—liberated from an addiction fueled by the technology that is so readily available to us.

Christians are torn. Do we abandon technology we can’t live without and become isolated from the culture? Or do we risk exposure to violence and sexual images while trying to engage the world we live in? In 1 Corinthians 6, God speaks to us about discernment, discipline, and discipleship.

Like everyone else, Christians are drowning in a sea of moral impurity, and we are becoming increasingly isolated. Social media is replacing face-to-face communication, and many people text all day long. Our addiction to technology and the rapid breakdown in morality go hand in hand. Yet the grace of God gives us a way out of this mess.

While some issues in life may lie in gray areas, others are black and white. One such issue is found in 1 John 2: “If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” For believers, loving God and the world at the same time is impossible. Let’s look at the great divide we all face as the media and the internet assault us with their calls to impurity.

Imagine yourself in a boat that’s safe and dry. Across the pond another boat is leaking and sinking. You may think you’re okay. But in terms of moral temptation, we’re all in the same boat. All of us as humans are prone to moral sins, and the media makes such sinning easy. Let’s explode some myths about who’s vulnerable to the power of the internet.

It’s been said that America will fall, not by the guns of its enemies, but by the moral rot of its citizens. The media is one reason why. The more “online” we become, the more exposed we are to forces determined to addict us to moral perversity. The danger is very real, and the evidence is everywhere. Here is a call to engage people who use the internet and other media to enslave us.

In a dark world, believers in Jesus have within them the light of God. Our challenge and obligation is to shine that light into the darkness around us, so that others may come to Christ and receive a new life.

When you’re lost in the dark, what you need is a source of light. It was Jesus who proclaimed, “I am the light of the world.” At Christmas, we remember His Light and rejoice in the salvation He provided for all who believe and receive Him.

When light comes, the darkness scatters. We may think darkness covers our sins, but in the light of God, nothing can be hidden. When Jesus came, light blazed into a darkened culture, and truth began to triumph over lies. That’s why many hate the Christ of Christmas. Getting close to Him exposes our darkness, and some would rather keep their darkness. Let’s come clean before God and allow Him to reign supreme in our lives.

Christmas is far more than gift giving, far more than the story of a baby born in a manger. It’s really a celebration of God’s intervention in human history. To a world lost in darkness, the Bible tells us that a great light was seen, a light personified by the Lord Jesus Christ. He bought our redemption, only possible because Jesus came to this earth to live and then die as a sacrifice for our sins.

We often hear about political attempts to encourage peace in the Middle East. Politicians make promises, and yet the conflict rages on. At best, Arabs and Israelis maintain a tense holding pattern in which neither side is assured of a secure future. Will there be peace before the return of Christ?
