Here is another short take Christian worldview with David if you are listening today and you understand now what sexual purity is versus sexual immorality, all to do with marriage. Of course, one man one woman marriage and your feeling convicted over the fact that I'm involved in sexual morality of sinning against God doing is great evil against God, and I can't overcome and I can't help myself I'm enslaved to it slave to pornography or living with my boyfriend or girlfriend, and unrepentant sexual sin. Here's the good news that God is offering to restore you or reconcile you to himself. And when you come to the point of realizing or confessing agreeing with God about your sin, confessing it to him yes got your right I am sitting against you. I deserve judgment. I repent of that help me go in a whole new direction. I believe in who you are and who your son is that you sent your son to earth to live a perfect life so that he could be the perfect sacrifice and pay the penalty I deserve to pay for my own sin and that through that payment that Christ made in the cross that your wrath and your justice is completely satisfied for all my sexual immorality against you. I trusted him fully, not any of my own works, but trust in Christ for salvation and eternal life. The good news is, God will forgive you to reconcile you to him and all of your past immoralities. He will forgive and as far as the east is from the West. So far will he remove your transgressions from you and when you are saved you are born again is John.

As Jesus said in John three. Three.

You must be born again, spiritually born again God gives you this incredible gift of his Holy Spirit to indwell you so that you have the the power to be able to overcome sexual immorality in the future going forward you a written verse I read earlier from first Corinthians chapter 6, do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. Don't be deceived.

Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, and he goes on will inherit the kingdom of God.

Why didn't read the next verse, and here's the verse of help. If you've been one of those persons and you repent and believe in who Christ is and what he did for you.

You believe in him.

It says this in verse 11. Such were some of you but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our God.

In other words that can be in your past that can be who you were and you can be one who is washed in the blood of Christ to sanctified made a holy you can be justified declared righteous in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. What a powerful message of good news that if you are involved in sexual immorality.

God is willing to forgive you and rescue you. So not only must we be saved but also we must be being if I can say that being sanctified is an ongoing process of pursuing holiness in Christ likeness. Romans chapter 12 says. Therefore, I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world and here's the key phrase, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what the will of God is that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

So here's the being sanctified part. Another words, once you're saved the whole point of the Christian life is to present your bodies a living in the holy X a sacrifice, acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship. So how do we do that well we don't get conformed to the world and its ways of being sexually immoral, but were transformed were changed by the renewing making new again renewing of our minds were in the word and were letting God's word change the way we think about who God is about who we are understanding what sexual morality is and how to overcome it. So it's been saved through repenting and believing in who Christ is, its being sanctified pursuing holiness or Christ likeness. Thus, the foundation is really committed to sexual purity in her life, knowing that it can be overcome. This is been a short take Christian worldview with David.
