to the ladies.
The sky is amazing. It is so lovely…God made it that way. How wonderful it is to serve such a wonderful God.
Yesterday at fellowship, all the young, single girls got an admonition. It was a beautiful one, and I would like to share it with you. It was given by an old man in the fellowship. His plea to us, was to never let go of Jesus, and to keep Him first in our eyes. He is the One that will guide us through thick and thin. He will never let us go. He went on the say how important it is that we are pure…
Now, purity to me is a huge thing. I am saddened by how many girls today are just simply giving themselves away. God does not want that! In Christ, is your body your own? No! Paul says in 1 Corinthians:
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (3:16 and 17)
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (6:19 and 20)
If we are to be holy before God, we must put on purity. Make it a frame of mind. Guard your hearts! Do you really want to serve the LORD? Then seek Him and not men. You desire to marry? Good, seek God. You want a man you say? Seek God. We waste so much time trying to get what we want, when really, God is trying to give us what we need. Ladies, Jesus is so much more lovely than anything you could ever desire. Is your will better than that of the Father? Does He not know the count of the stars, and did He not know you before you were formed in the womb? All through the Scriptures we can see the parallel of faithfulness and failure. We see kings that loved the LORD with all their hearts, we see men that were disobedient to the direction of Jehovah, and we see godly radicals that have been martyred for the Kingdom. Will you be faithful to God? Women, put on Christ! Make Him your one desire. Like that old man said to me in fellowship yesterday, “Don’t give one inch away.” O how much God desires His children to be pure! Girls, put on purity. Do not settle for the mediocre, type A woman. Strive to be more than that. Open your hearts and let the LORD move. Be pure and holy.
