Let’s talk Chastity! (2)

Still on the issue of chastity. This time around the focus is on the married. O yes, before you ask, chastity concerns the married too. 

Chastity within the confines of marriage means you don’t do anything to violate your marriage either with someone other than your spouse (adultery) or with yourself (pornography). Your marriage is honourable and must be kept in a place of honour.

The focal scripture is still Hebrews 13:4- 
Marriage is honourable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

Adultery is voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a person who is not their spouse. 

Before we go too far, you must know that once your thought drifts towards another person in a sexual way, you’re an adulterer. Yes, even without touching the person physically. 

Check this out: But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. ( Matthew 5:28) 

Candice Watters says, “Purity means that married people may have sex only with each other, and only in ways that honor and celebrate God’s purposes. 

Anything that dishonors them is impure, grieves God and ultimately hurts even the spouses themselves.

A few examples are having sex in ways that hurt or humiliate, refusing sex out of spite, making selfishly excessive demands for sex, refusing the gift of children, and pretending that the spouse is someone else.” 

Being chaste as a married person will help you have a happy marriage. Your marriage is a priority. Being faithful is your aim.

 No reason at all justifies you cheating on your spouse.

 As she suddenly gone fat? Take her to the gym or become her personal trainer. Chastity is you staying true to your marital vows even if her Oby/Gyn has asked her to stay off sex for the remaining part of the pregnancy she’s carrying. Chastity is you staying put with your husband during the time of financial crisis without selling your body for money. 

Don’t be deceived. God can not be mocked. What a man (or woman) sows he (or she) will reap. These are perilous times. The devil is fighting to bring as many people as possible down by engaging in various sins.

An adulterer is a traitor. God’s judgement awaits traitors (2Tim. 3:4). Stop defrauding your spouse. Stop breaking the vows you made to your spouse before God. Go and amend your ways if you’re guilty as charged. You can stay true and faithful in this world full of betrayal and lust. 

God’s grace is sufficient for you to stay true to your vows!

You can stay pure if you decide to.
