Value Purity

Because of the Lord Jesus Christ,
You are urged not to be enticed;
Living in a God pleasing way,
And no longer trying to stray.

Although temptation causes strife,
You must live the God pleasing life;
Do it the way that you were taught,
Not to let desire be sought.

You know just what you have been told,
On being humble and not bold;
It is the will of God to quit,
Causing salvation to forfeit.

Go find a husband or a wife,
For spending the rest of your life;
Not someone for passion and lust,
Rather that you can fully trust,

No person should take advantage,
Of your character to damage;
Trying to be a deceiver,
By exploiting a believer.

God has called us to be holy,
For being His one and only;
So do not try to act unchaste,
Allow the cross to be embraced.

Whoever rejects through merit,
Barricades the Holy Spirit;
Attempting to enter within,
Because of corruption and sin.

I urge you to love even more,
Not to entice with lustful lure;
Rather showing that you do care,
And that you are willing to share.
