Doesn’t my body know that I started to follow Jesus a long time ago ? Yet, why does it constantly not follow Jesus? My mind. My heart. My body. All connected, and yet all do their own thing. Christian dating is hard. Setting physical boundaries is hard. You can only read so many devotionals, Christian blogs and Bible verses on purity before you begin to wonder, what am I doing wrong? Why is none of this controlling my body?
What do you do if you’ve set physical boundaries and you’re pursuing purity in dating, yet your body is doing its own thing?
I can train my heart and my mind. I can pursue pure thoughts and try to glorify God in purity. But my body… it doesn’t listen. It does its own thing.
We were just sitting on the grass holding hands and talking by the beach, the purest action of any newly dating couple. We had set our physical boundaries and in this moment we were following them. As a Christian dating couple, we longed to bring God glory in everything we did, including the way we loved each other physically
Yet in this moment, my body didn’t care. Our bodies were connected only by our hands, but my body had already begun preparing for sex. Without breaking any boundaries, my body had made its own decision. My body wanted sex. - Joy Pedro
I stumbled on this sometime ago and I recall that recently I've seen a lot of couples going celibate. Its never an easy task especially when you are alone and sometimes cuddle and before you know you have started dancing instead of clapping. Apostle Paul said "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do."
Here 's one thing I know about celibate relationships
Be honest with yourself and your boyfriend. Are there specific situations you should avoid? Scenarios that allow more chances for your body to betray you? When he knows you are struggling, he will help you. If he’s a godly man, he will fight with you and partner beside you. Together, you can pursue purity.

This will resonate with a lot of single Christians. It was the story of my life before I got married.ReplyDelete

Sex is simply part of human nature no matter how much we try to fight it, hence the reason why Priests still indulge in it secretly after taking an oath of celibacy.ReplyDelete
Well, as the Bible said, "the fruits of the flesh". It will always want it wants I think. I believe it is our job to fight that, to ignore it and keep treating our body like a temple. For me, I think of it like a physical temple. A temple gets dusty no. There might be litter. It is our job to keep maintaining that temple. It is not just something that's just clean. It is something requires constant cleaning.ReplyDelete
