Positive Reasons for Purity
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: What are some positive motivations for staying morally pure?
Woman 1: I want to stay pure for my future husband.
Man 1: I don’t want to worry about diseases all the time.
Woman 2: I don’t want to always be afraid of getting caught.
Nancy: I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, with Seeking Him.
You know, the Bible’s perspective on purity has gotten a bad rap as repressive and outdated, but really, nothing could be further from the truth. A commitment to moral purity can be a huge step toward personal revival, deep joy, and true freedom.
Man 2: I fight temptation because I love my wife.
Woman 3: I love my husband.
Woman 4: I want my kids to grow up in a stable home.
Man 3: Probably because younger people are watching me.
Nancy: In 1 Thessalonians Paul says, “For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God.”
Man 2: I want to stay pure because I love God.
Nancy: Purity. It’s a wonderful result of seeking Him.
