Christian purity is an important topic that all of us should pay attention to.
In today's world, it is more and more difficult to be truly pure. Here are a few things to consider about the importance of this topic and how it relates to you as a Christian.
Being pure as a Christian does not necessarily just refer to being a virgin. Yes it is important to save yourself until marriage. However, there are other areas of your life that you can be pure in as well. For example, one of the most difficult battles that all of us face is trying to keep our thoughts pure.
Every day, we are bombarded by marketing campaigns, TV shows, websites, and everything else. Most of these things try to control our thoughts. They lead us to think impure thoughts. It is very difficult to sit down and watch a television show or a movie without seeing something that has to do with sex. This leads us to thinking impure thoughts in many cases. If you continually think about these things enough, they are going to start to manifest in your life. As one of the famous Christian quotes says, "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he..." Therefore, the biggest battle that we face is trying to keep our thoughts pure.
So is the battle hopeless? Of course not! It is going to be difficult to keep your thoughts pure. However, you can do it with a little bit of practice. You need to try to think about every single thought that you have. When you find your mind drifting, you need to bring it back into focus. When you are struggling, stop what you are doing and pray. It is very difficult to talk to God and think about impure thoughts.
Keep yourself in prayer as much as possible and focus on what you are thinking. This is going to go a long way towards helping you stay pure.
