This past Sunday at Centre Church we discussed 'The Vow of Purity' and the idea 'where secrecy lives, intimacy dies.' I understand this message lands a lot of different ways to different people and that some of the ideas or truth spoken was challenging. We had those at the end of service who responded to make change and asked for God to move in their lives. To help you make further steps towards health and freedom we want to provide you with 4 next steps you can take today for overcoming porn or secret sexual sin.
Here are 4 next steps you can take today:
1) Tell your spouse and/or someone you trust about any areas you may be feeling shame about or struggling with regarding purity. If you don't feel like you have someone to share with, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk or I can help you find help.
2) If you may struggle with porn and need help with web accountability read this article for how to quit porn. This is an article produced by life.church with some resources at the end that can help you in your battle to beat porn.
3) Join a small group and get connected with people who will support you towards freedom. For a list of groups go to ccsmallgroups.net
3) Take time to memorize God's word starting with Proverbs 28:13, which reads, "Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy." Know that God's forgiveness is available to you and that as you confess your sin he forgives you.
I want to help you live in the freedom God has called you to and live well his calling for your life. I believe that you can overcome and am praying that you take your necessary next steps today!
