Solomon. The wisest man in the whole world. Ever. Fell to sex.
David. The man after God's own heart. Fell to sex.
Samson. The real-life superhero. Fell to sex.
Falling to sex is something men have done for a long time...
AND each was severely punished.
1 Cor 10:8
We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died...
These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us...
12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!
13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted d beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
For your own sake (much less for the sake of everyone who knows you follow Jesus) get humble.
Humble yourself while the monster is one inch tall. Confess the internet search, the extended browsing, the questionable conversation, the __________________________....
Get humble at the earliest warning level.
Run into the light. Share it exactly with your brother or sister (not co-ed).
You have an opportunity to get healed.
Put crazy strong boundaries in place.
Every man in our community... be open with your sin to another man.
Every woman in our community... be open with your sin to another woman.
Let's not end up with their consequences...
Own your sin.
Confess it to another person.
Allow them to pray for you.
Submit yourself to their accountability and humble yourself over and over again...
...that you may be healed.
