Above all else guard your heart for its the wellspring of LIFE. ( PRO 25: 28)
For the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread,and the adulteress preys upon your very LIFE (Pro 6:26 )
Sexual sin in any form which is against the bible brings DEATH,not physical but separation from God through Jesus Christ.This is one of the worst experience we can have,as a Christian(the guilt caused, and all the associated emotions).
king David describes this experience(separation from god ) in psalms 32. I've experienced what he says in psalms 32 : 4 - my STRENGTH was sapped as in the heat of a summer.(when i felt like a loser after giving in to my urges for continuous days.I felt there is no LIFE(strength or motivation) in me to do anything and I am gonna be a failure in life,wasting away my life,masturbating to porn without any control over my emotions.Solomon compares this state to a city whose walls are broken
Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control. (Pro 25 :28)
But here comes the role of Jesus Christ.In him we have LIFE and ABUNDANT LIFE.
John 7: 37 , 38
On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and proclaimed, "If any one thirst, let him come to me and drink.
He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, 'Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.'"
John 4 : 14
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
In Jesus Christ we have LIFE ,hope and everlasting strength.
