Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.  Hebrews 13:4

 

WHY IS IMPURITY IN MARRIAGE INCREASING?

  • MORE TEMPTATIONS TODAY THAN IN THE PAST.
  • PEOPLE ARE GETTING MARRIED LATER.
  • GROWING SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT.

INWARD AND OUTWARD PURITY

  1. OUTWARD PURITY: THE BEHAVIOR.

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurityEphesians 5:3

Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house. Proverbs 5:8

Flee from sexual immorality…19 You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.  1 Corinthians 6:18, 19-20

  1. INWARD PURITY: THE HEART.

How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. 10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:9-11

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

THREE RESPONSES TO IMPURITY

  1. DEFENSIVENESS
  2. REMORSE
  3. REPENTANCE

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

TALK IT OVER

  • How might you be compromising your purity and putting yourself at risk?                         
  • Share a time when you dealt with impurity. How did you deal with it and what did you learn from your experience?       
  • What outward or inward changes do you need to make to ensure you live a life of purity?
