Are you worth waiting for?
Are you having sex before marriage, or living w/ someone whom you are not married to? If you are, without realizing it, you are demeaning yourself and the other person. How? Because you are telling the other person by your actions that they are NOT WORTH WAITING FOR and therefore you are placing them in a disposable relationship… and, at the same time, you are saying the same thing about yourself.
• We don’t realize who we really are in God’s eyes, nor do we realize who the other person is when we live this kind of way. Let me give you an example… God BREATHED His spirit and the breathe of life and formed you in the womb of your mother and called you by name… He also did this with the other person. He called you both into life, He called you each by name and your little heart started beating with life… He formed your little hands and feet and formed you into the man and woman you are becoming. But He also formed us with an eternal soul with a plan in mind, just as He did with Adam and Eve… “I will create a helpmate like unto himself... and the two shall become one flesh.”
• For those who are not married yet but who are called to this vocation, did you know that there is someone out there right now, in the world, whom He created, just as He created you, and that person is out there and you are meant to spend the rest of your life with that person and to have a life with them, to create another life by having children with them, and have a family with them? It may be a person you are not in a relationship with yet and you have never met them or maybe it is the person you are with now…. How will you ever know who it is? Well, you will never know unless you actually WAIT to find out and save yourself for that person.
Once you meet that person who is “your other half”…. You will want to wait for them and you will want to make the ultimate sacrifice to be with them and to lay down the rest of your life for that person. They are worth it, and more than that, so are you! You are worth a lot more than you give yourself credit for.
Don’t treat yourself as if you are disposable nor do this to anyone else! You are not just flesh, contrary to what the world tells you… The world says you don’t need to be married, you don’t have to wait… but this is because the world denies what is unseen…it denies that you are more than flesh and just a blob of tissue… You have an eternal soul! And so does everyone else… and, again, you are telling the other person they are not worth more and worth waiting for if you are with them before marriage!
Don’t bring someone whom you say you love into a disposable relationship… bring them into a covenant and do not be with them sexually until AFTER both of you are sealed by the Blood of the Lamb and blessed by your Heavenly Father. Have you received God the Father’s blessing yet to be WITH His son or daughter? Than you do not have permission to go into His Temple and defile it. That is His resting place, that is His inner room. We forget that we belong to Him and that we are His Temple… Take away the flesh and what is left of you? That is why you wait and why you are worth waiting for.
