HALT

February 2, 2016

sugar coating

“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,” Proverbs 28: 13 says, “but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” That means if you’re having an affair, you don’t just slide out of it. You tell the person today, “We’re done.” If it’s a porn issue, you find someone of the same gender you can trust and say, “I need help. I’m going to address it.” And you unplug your computer.

Whatever you need to do— be as radical as you need to be. That was what Jesus meant when He said, “If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. . . . If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away” (Matt. 5: 29– 30). He didn’t mean it literally. You could pluck out one eye and still lust with the other. He meant sin has to be treated as a deadly danger. He was telling you to be as drastic as you need to be, to do whatever God calls you to do, because your heavenly Father has a desire and a plan to love you and give you what’s best.

How about you? How have you thought about sex and your relationship with God? Have you bought some of these lies? Can you imagine sex as a sacred, intimate gift from your Creator to cement and satisfy your need for a love built on permanence, security, and commitment?

Do you realize that wherever you are and wherever you’ve been that Jesus extends an offer to receive His forgiveness and start afresh? You matter! Sex is sacred! Don’t settle for less.

So how about it, are you ready to have God in every area of your life, including your sex life?

Do you want to stop feeling guilty?

How about the downward spiral, think about when things started to get out of control, and now the things you do now.

Remember HALT? Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired, and money, motive, time and opportunity = acting out.

You can put a stop to this, God wants to help and forgive, if you’re reading this it means it isn’t to late, you haven’t committed the unpardonable sin, far from it. The prodigal son/daughter does come home.
