Run!

Are you a man’s man?  You know—the type of man that other men look up to with strength, discipline, and no fear.

Think you can handle anything as long as you choose to?

So in your mind you’re strong enough and disciplined enough “IF…”

  • If you were to enter a public bathroom with a complementary stack of porn magazines, you could resist browsing
  • If you worked with an attractive women for long hours week after week, you would always have integrity and never flirt, fantasize, of cross the line of adultery with her
  • If you were at home for an extended period of time with an internet accessible computer, you would not log on to pornographic websites.
  • If you were alone on a business trip having dinner and through the course of the evening an attractive women offered herself to you for a one time no-strings-attached night of sex, you would say, “no thanks.”

The Bible offers this simple word of advice:

Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.” (I Corinthians 6:18)

I know, you’re probably asking yourself, “What exactly does the word “run” mean, in the original Greek?”

Well, the Greek meaning for the word run is, “to RUN!”  This time it is not complicated at all.

No matter who you are; no matter how strong you are; no matter how disciplined you are, never, Never, NEVER test your resolve with sexual sin. 

Don’t try to figure it out, don’t try to rationalize it, and don’t deceive yourself.  Just run in the opposite direction of ALL sexual sin—of the sexual temptation.
