Do you have a porn prob (so sorry 'bout that).. or do you even call it that.. a real problem?

Admit it and quit it--the cyber-weirdness and cyber-flirting. You weren't designed for that. So many tell me porn is so natural and good. It ain't. It's UNwholesome--doesn't make whole at all. Heals zero. Helps zero. It's probably all airbrushed what you see and seek. Stop it--it's fake. Repent of that--change by God's power. It's not good for you at all, but let me say this. Sex ..in and of itself ..it ain't bad. Duh!  



What it points to is a natural God given desire that Mr. Lu-Cifer wants to negatively exploit. Hey SEX.. is not bad. Fornication and adultery are sins. God says flee youthful lusts. 

Want to tell this nation.. SEX is better the way God intended it. It's been proven by poll after poll that sex with those caught up in porn is far less satisfying. Want the West to know that sex is more than just a mere physical activity--it can be so blessed in the context of marriage between one man and one woman. God thought of it. Marry a growing Christian of God's choice for you if you are called to one day be married. Hey, I have three sons, so listen. I've tried this and like it. Be encouraged. 

God doesn't want to take something away from you. He has something good for you and He has a timing too.   

Do you call yourself a Christian? 

Do you want to be like a vessel of wood, clay, gold or of silver and used for things of honor. Or will you be a cheaper type, or a uber-cracked pot, used for things of dishonor? We each choose. 

Again, you may thinking or askin', "Well, can't all types of vessels can be used of God--they indeed can't they be." 

The answer is, yes, but you really don't want to be used as a vessel for dishonor. No you don't. No one does. 

God can use a vessel of clay, wood, silver or gold so to speak, but guess what.. He won't use one that's dirty. Why? Well, cuz this just doesn't represent who He really is to a lost and strayin' sideways kinda world. 

God loves you, but He is just and way-holy as well. Have you been out of hope lately? 

We you messed up and need a second chance? We have a living hope--Jesus is the one door in. The Bible says...

"Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope and expectation [anticipating the time when I will restore My favor on her]. And she will sing there and respond as in the days of her youth as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt." Hosea 2:15 amp 

We can repent and believe--there is hope for our nation. Do you know Him ..I don't mean merely know of Him.. but really know Him yet? He creates, and no worries if you've blown it bad.. He also recreates. 

It's interesting to me that Paul uses this type of vessel illustration in Romans 9:21-23, although with a different emphasis:

What does God in the Bible ask? "Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for common use? What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory…"

In that context, the Apostle Paul is emphasizing God's sovereign right to do as He pleases with His own creation. Sure, as a good potter, He can do whatever He wants to with His clay, and the clay has no right really to challenge the good potter. 

But remember.. in 2 Timothy 2:20-21, Paul's emphasis is on our responsibility to cleanse ourselves from the defilement of sin.

We don't have time for filthy porn.. anywhere or in any form. How can we be a good witness for Jesus with that super lame habit? 
Listen, there is no contraceptive big enough to fit over your soul. You were destined for impact.. with purity and power for a higher purpose. Who needs all the weird soul-ties to pull em down? God can forgive and He can use you for His glory. It's a mission for and to glorify the Fisher, and for fishin' the way He did it on earth.
"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:24
Let's live clean, real candid with Christ.. bringin' it all out into the light where He can fix stuff with us. Let's all-out seek Him daily..earnestly. 
To the degree that we long for the next world where Jesus is, we become able to combat the hypnotizing dirty influences of this world ..and to help others through His Word come clean.
Do you have to be used of God? Do you want to live as an effective witness for Jesus Christ? The Christian life is meant to be lived in the presence of Christ and in the company of others, not alone. Clean and clear with power for making a difference. It's for a world changing and edifying kinda purpose!  facebook.com/shareJesus
