HAVE YOU MADE A COVENANT WITH YOUR EYES? DO NOT COMPROMISE WITH SEXUAL LUST, SEXUAL SIN AND PORNOGRAPHY. PROTECT YOUR MIND. Job 31:1'I made a covenant with mine eyes, why then should I look upon a maid?'
Protect your marriage. Protect your future marriage if you are single. Protect above all things your relationship with a holy and loving God!!

Lust blinds you to the reality of the holiness of God. When your mind is full of sexual lust it pushes out the thought of a holy God.
We live in a X-rated world full of lustful indecent images, porn and immodesty and we must be determined to maintain a pure mind. The battle rages and is fierce and like righteous Job who feared God and hated evil we must also make a commitment not to 'look with lust' at other women.This also applies to woman lusting after men.

Matt 5:28'That whosoever looks on a women to lust after her hath committed adultery with her in his heart.'Once again this can apply to women also lusting after men.

STUDY BIBLE NOTE-"What Christ condemns is not the sudden thought that Satan may place in a person's mind or an improper desire that arises suddenly. Rather it is a wrong thought or desire that is accompanied by the approval of one's will. It is having an immoral desire that would seek fulfillment if the opportunity arose.The inner desire for illicit sexual pleasure if contemplated and not resisted, is sin.(Speaking about sexual fantasies.We should have this scripture taped on our computers) 
The Christian must be very careful to abstain taking pleasure in scenes of immorality or nudity such as shown in movies, music, videos,TV, books, magazines and on some Internet sites!
In the area of maintaining sexual purity, the woman as well as the man has a responsibility. The Christian woman must be careful not to dress in a way that attracts attention to her body, thereby creating temptation for men and encourage lust. Dressing immodestly or sensually is associated with lust and therefore should be avoided." (This applies to both men and women)

Very shocking how many who say they love Jesus will go to movies that are full of filth and sexual immorality and watch very disgusting sitcoms and T.V. shows. This will infect your mind with lust and it is wrong to do this. It will greatly affect your conscience and make it dull and calloused. God demands holiness is this area also. What we allow in our minds can greatly affect our minds. Fill your mind with the Word of God.

1.Clothes are to modestly cover the body not expose it. Cover and conceal not lure and reveal. Modesty matters to God and to men. Set a godly example please and do not be a sexual tease. Holiness applies also with how we dress as Christians.

2.Being a Christian in a culture that constantly bombards us with sexual messages does not mean we are destined to give into sexual temptation. It means that it is easy for us to adopt attitudes and thought patterns that could lead to immoral, ungodly choices if we are not careful. Therefore we must not compromise. We must be very diligent to resist the devil and to say 'no' to ungodly lusts.

3.Failure in the area of purity has devastating consequences, not only in personal lives but the lives of families and also the church as a whole. An unholy church will never win an unholy world to Christ. Immorality is rampant in the church. A flood of filth is tolerated and rarely a word spoken against it.

4.We must fight hard to maintain a lifestyle of purity. Love for God is a great motivation for honoring His standards for a holy, pure life. We cannot afford to be passive when it comes to living holy and pure lives.

SCRIPTURES TO STUDY !
-Romans 6:12 'Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.'
-Romans 13:14 'But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ ,and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.'
-2nd Corinthians 7:1'Having therefore these promises ,dearly beloved ,let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,perfecting holiness in the fear of God.'
-1st Thessalonians 4:7' For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.'
-2nd Timothy 2:22 'Flee youthful lusts: but follow righteousness ,faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.'
-Titus 2:12'Teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts ,we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.'
-1st Peter 2:11' Dearly beloved ,I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.'

This is a very serious issue and when we fail we must run to the 
Cross and repent and seek forgiveness. And we must make every effort to forsake unrighteous thoughts and to make clear decisions of what we put before our eyes and to protect our eyes at all costs.
1st Thessalonians 4:1-8 please read this passage.God's will is holiness and that we must abstain from sexual immorality ! It says if we despise this teaching we are despising the Holy Spirit. God's standards for purity are high and we can obey Him by His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
