Freedom from Sexual Sins

Many people including Biblical characters who were anointed failed in the area of sexual holiness. God has called us to live a holy life and we can progress in life victoriously when we give ourselves fully to be led by the Holy Spirit.
Yesterday we discussed how to overcome sexual sins in connection to pornography.

2 Peter 2:20 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.

Our eyes need to be holy and we ought to program them to capture good and divine visions. Our output depends on our intake. Whatever visuals we capture through images and videos will be stored in our memory and will replay in various instances. We can delete all filthy visuals from our memory with the help of the Holy Spirit and thereafter its our duty to feed ourselves with good and heavenly visuals.

God dealt with His people through visions, and so does He with us, who are His children. God spoke to Joseph in a dream. God brought Abraham out of his tent and asked him to look to the stars in the sky to visualize God’s promise regarding his descendants. If you’re a person who longs for revival, begin to continuously visualize revival. Consecrate your eyes to see heavenly things, and God can change us to see open visions, like how Cornelius had a clear vision (Acts 10:3)

Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

Colossians 3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

By the Spirit, we can put to death evil desires, train our bodies accordingly and offer ourselves as an instrument for God. Just as our sight, our thoughts would be bombarded with sexual pleasures. On such occasions, we need to replace them with good thoughts. Also, you can open up with a mature, faithful believer about your struggle with pornography and they can mentor you, providing you support for a long period till you overcome such thoughts. If you’re capable, you can fast for long days to subject the flesh to the Spirit by God’s grace. We’re not of our own, we’re purchased by the precious blood of Jesus and therefore, our ownership belongs to Jesus; and when we carry our bodies in a clean and healthy manner and in holiness, we honour God with our bodies. When we value our bodies accordingly, we can easily withdraw from the desires of the flesh. Nobody would dare to deliberately intake something that’s poisonous; we limit/avoid foods that aren’t good for our health. So, if we decide to filter the information that we feed through our senses by the help of the Holy Spirit, we’ll be more fruitful in our area of involvement and our quality of life will be enhanced.

Addictions

The devil has unleashed several kinds of addiction amid mankind and pornography is one such addiction. An addiction is a chronic dysfunction of the brain system that involves reward, motivation, and memory.
Our body is satiated when we eat and drink water. But when we divert our intake to unhealthy substances such as alcohol, drugs, tobacco, etc. the pleasure centres in our brain gets activated and the reward circuit in our brain demands for more quantity of such addictive substances and the whole reward system gets upset. The sad thing is that even school going children are exposed to such addictions.
Addiction hijacks the brain and affects both brain structure and brain function. It usually originates from toxic shame. Many people compromise on parenting while chasing professionalism, some parents send their children to boarding schools or to be with grandparents and do not connect well with their children. It’s always suggested to stay together as a family, whether abroad or in your hometown.

Many people fear losing their job and for some, jobs become their idols. Do not treasure your job above or equivalent to God. It is God who sustains you all the days of your life; regardless of whether you have a job or not. Family is the smallest unit of a society. Our family matters to God and therefore make time for your spouse and children. When a child is subjected to shame and rejection in its formative years, it in turn affects the core identity of that child. Guilt causes a person to think that ‘I made a mistake’ whereas shame causes a person to think ‘I am a mistake’. It’s a serious issue that creates a vacuum in one’s inner being and they wander in life to fill that vacuum.

You may be a person who's been through such issues. But no matter what has happened in the past, God can wash out your memory, your wounds and in Christ you can become a new creation with a new life, new future and new destiny. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever and He is capable of showering all that love you missed out in your yesterdays. Remember: your past is buried in Christ; your present is hidden in Christ and your future will be revealed in Christ!
