Accountability for Purity

Accountability is simply a system of checks and balances that are personalized for your goals, which in this case are purity related. If you are familiar with accountability already, you might immediately jump to the idea of an accountability partner. This is a person of the same sex with whom you meet on regular intervals and who addresses specific areas of your life with you that you desire growth in.

Praying for Purity

by admin on July 15, 2011 in Purity with 59 Comments

Because you will be making choices along the way that will lead either towards purity (meaning faithful celibacy prior to marriage and God-designed sex within marriage) or away from purity, then you need to be equipped with a road map and an understanding of the cost of the journey before you.

As Jesus says about the cost of discipleship, “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it?” (Luke 14:28), the same is true about any goal for or journey towards living in God’s will. You don’t fall into purity; you need a plan, preparation, provision, and perspective to maintain it.
