[size=+1]“Challenge for Christian Single Ladies”[/size] This challenge is to encourage my sisters to stay celibate & live for God. I feel that we as Christian women, we should respect our bodies and hold it sacred. Sex is a special gift that should be shared in marriage and it should not be dragged in the mud (like pornagraphy, videos, etc.). The Christian is called to live a life of unselfish love. Abstinence should always seek to glorify God and buildup fellow believers in the faith. The Rules are: 1) No late night dates when initially meeting someone-especially if you are not a strong christian yet. No clubbing and no living together. 1 Thessalonians 5:22-23 - Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2) No type of sexual contact (having sex, impure thoughts, oral sex, masturbation, etc.) and no sexual immorality. Colossians 3:5 - Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Ephesians 5:5 - Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure man, or one who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. The Apostle Paul was never married. He followed Christ and used God’s teachings. Apostle Paul said, “The Believers body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and should not be polluted by unclean things.” 1 Corinthians 6 19-20 - Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. Paul also exhorted the church of Thessalonians to “abstain from sexual immorality.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from fornication; Holy Spirit Check---Also your Holy Spirit will let you know when you are not doing God's Will. FINAL NOTE-The only reason for breaking this challenge---- [size=+2]IS IF YOU GET MARRIED!![/size] Genesis 2:23-24 - Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh. I will pray for all of you that this challenge will make you stronger in your faith, closer to God, following Jesus's path, and I rebuke anyone and anything that will try and stop you from getting the Prize. God Bless you ladies.
