Sex and money are the two subjects that I believe are the most taboo subjects to talk about openly in the church…certainly from the pulpit. Not coincidentally, sex and money are the two venues in which Satan seems to be gaining ground in the lives of God's people.
“Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of
your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all
times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.” Proverbs 5:18-19
surround by commercials, media, internet stuff that is designed to make me
think about sex. How am I supposed to not look when someone that hot walks by
me?" By depending on God, and by purifying our eyes. Martin Luther once said, regarding keeping our lust in
check, “You can’t keep a bird from flying over your head, but you can keep it
from building a nest in your hair.” We must protect our eyes as we pursue holiness. God will accept and bless that sacrifice.
