I know far too many people in society today who think that sex outside of marriage is "no big deal." But those people who say that are usually the ones in relationships that make them unhappy and unfulfilled.
Keeping ourselves chaste until we're married is giving ourselves AND our spouses a beautiful gift! But we cannot imagine its value until we exercise the patience and self-restraint that makes it the GREATEST gift we can give to our true and only love.
And for those who did not recognize the gift that they had in store for their future one and only, and chose the lesser gift, THERE IS HOPE. Jesus Christ has made it possible for us to be clean and new, untainted and pure. All it takes is a change of heart and trust in the Lord's infinite power to make us chaste, once again.
As the Lord said,
"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
You and your amazing future are worth waiting for. And, as Jesus showed us, you're worth dying for.
