Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
OPENING PRAYER: Father, open my heart to all I need to know about sexual purity
BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 6:15-20
MEMORY VERSE: “For this is the will of God, your sanctifcation: that you should abstain from sexual immorality” 1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NKJV).
INTRODUCTION: Purity is important to God and staying sexually pure before and during marriage is trendy because purity has to do with the mind and the act. The sex journey starts from the mind, no wonder Jesus says whoever looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her. Also, Hebrews 13:4 boldly declares that a marriage is honourable when the bed is undefiled. Premarital sex, lustful sexual thoughts, and any form of sexual vices are not acceptable to God because God is holy and we are His temple.

1. ILLS OF PREMARITAL SEX AND LUSTFUL THOUGHTS
To engage in premarital sex (sex before marriage):
1. Is to commit a grievous sin in God’s sight (1 Cor.10:3) and to also sin against one’s body (1 Cor.6:18).
2. It also comes with a sense of hatred or guilt that haunts its victims (2 Sam. 13:15).
3. Unwanted pregnancy may result from this illicit sexual act, thus, bringing about shame and reproach to the victim and it may even result in abortion – which is murder (Ex.20:13).
4. Some Sexually Transmitted Infections/Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STIs/STDs), HIV/AIDS, etc. may result from this illicit act.
5. Also, the negative emotional and psychological impacts of premarital sexual behaviour such as; a life of reqrets, loss of self-respect, depression (2Sam.13:19-20), loss of family support, substance abuse, and even suicide are some of the problems associated with illicit sexual activities.
B. Apart from the fact that lustful thoughts are sinful (Matt.5:28);
1. They also help to trigger illicit sex (Mk.7:21)
2. It defile its victims (Rom.124).
3. In it all, the judgment of God is on those who defile themselves (1Cor.3:17).
4. Engaging in uncontrollable lustful thought is a sign that one is not filled with the Holy Spirit as one should (1Thess. 4:3-5).

2. Staying pure sexually prevents emotional entanglements that may negatively affect future relationships and marriages (1 Cor.6:16).
3. It secures one’s destiny for good (Gen.39:12; 41:38-42).
4. The pure in heart are blessed because they will see God (Matt.5:8).
5. Sexual purity helps to maintain a steady relationship with God (Ps.24:3-4).
6. It also brings about peace with God and with oneself (Rom.8:6).
7. The fear of contracting STIs/STDs will be eliminated.
8. Unlawful partners do not have access to your godly temple (2Cor.6:15-16).
9. You honour God and He honours you in return (1Sam.2:30b).
