Only God is infinitely gracious. Only God freely forgives. Only God remains.

If Jesus Christ appeared on your doorstep and personally delivered your future spouse to you, would you run into His arms first, now that you’ve finally seen Him? Or would you be more excited to meet your future husband/wife as if it’s the only moment you’ve been waiting for?
I hear too many females say, “I just want a guy that will love me for me and love me forever.” I got a great guy for you, his name is Jesus Christ. He’s the king of romance. The definition of love. The perfect husband.
She hates thee
You make loving into longing
And meaning into melting
And self-respect into a moment of pleasure
She hates thee
You charmingly hand her a robe of shame
To hide her scarlet letter—
In fear of that crimson A
She feels a moment’s relief
Oh! How she desires to tear away the robe and hold the A high up in the air
And then trample it underneath her feet
But shame overpowers
And the A
Remains hidden, deep
Where no one can remove its seams from her flesh
She despises thee
And yet, she sews another A under her robe and ties the belt tighter
My prayer is that one day, women will feel free to talk about this. Ladies: You do not need to feel alone or live in shame of this. Psalm 34:5 says that, “Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” May we boldly live in this freedom! Because we have our Lord, our Christ — who was born today (rejoice!!) — we are free of our insecurities, our fears, and our curiosities that have caused us to live in sexual sin and then hide, out of shame. This Christmas, let’s accept the gift that God has given us in His Son: the freedom to accept our purity in Him. If anything, see that you are not alone and that women everywhere struggle with pornography, lust, and desire the freedom to talk about it. Our beautiful Savior is this freedom!
Be closer to Jesus!
