“Vow Not to Tarry in Sexual Immorality” by Dr. Jené Walker

Single men and women of God who have professed, “I will never marry (like we assume of Paul) or I will never marry again,” must also profess to live a life of celibacy. God said it isn’t meant for man to be alone and that woman was created to be a suitable help mate. He designed marriage to perpetuate the kingdom of God through the family.
If we think we can use God’s grace as a license to sleep with a man and wake up and ask for forgiveness when in our hearts we know we will sleep with him again tonight, how are we sincerely repentant? Do we believe that God doesn’t know that when we say we will never marry that we plan to sleep with a couple of women to satisfy our needs every now and then (or just let them perform sexual acts on you-sin)? It is better to marry than to perish with passion.
 
We can’t continue to say “God knows our hearts” when what’s in our hearts is selfishness, lust, greed, and a desire to sin perpetually. Surrender selfish desires to God today. Let God fill your void and fulfill your needs.
 
1 John 3:9-10 NIV “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.”
