If you do experience temptation, remember that God always gives you a way out. And if you do sin, remember that God grants grace and forgiveness for those who believe in Jesus. If your partner does not want to fight for purity, you might want to reconsider your relationship. The Bible tells us that our bodies are God’s temples.

In that moment, the future possibility of pain seems irrelevant. My boyfriend at the time would often come over my house. You are using uncommitted sexual acts to meet your needs of love that can only be found in Christ. When you understand the love of Jesus, you can stop separating sex and marriage. For example, stop spending time alone in a private place. Instead of Giving into temptations, fight against them.Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? ” When you sin sexually, even with your boyfriend or girlfriend, you are making God’s temple into a prostitute.God doesn’t want you to see how close to the line you can get.
