In these verses God is speaking to us about holy living and not living by our desires; our lustful desires; God has called us to live holy and honorable unto him as the scriptures says in verse 4:4-5 "that each of you should learn to control his own body, in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust, like the heathen, who do not know God."(NIV)
Who is God speaking to; he is speaking to all that believes that he is GOD,those who know him. God is requiring(not asking), commanding that we die to our flesh and that we live holy unto him; submitting ourselves to his will and the scripture tells us what his will is. The scripture in verse 4:7-8 "For God did not not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit." (NIV)
Sexual desires and such activities must be placed under Christ's control, sexual sins can be damaging not only to our physical relationships or bodies but to our spiritual relationship with God and our spiritual growth.God created sex for marriage. Being santified or made holy is the process of living the christian life. God gives us the Holy Spirit to teach us how to become more like Christ; it conforms us into the images of Christ. Are we perfect no, does God expect us to know how to do this on our own, No. God has given us instruction and he has given us the Holy Spirit to help us, guide us
James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should askGod, who gives generously without finding fault, and it will be given to him. verse 6 says " But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt"
We all struggle with things, we all have had to ask God to help us get to that point of Holy and Honorable, but God said it in his word, that all we have to do is ask him and he will help us without counting it against us,on top of that he says he will give it to us, he has in his instructions, through his son, but we have to BELIEVE and not Doubt. If you are struggling with lust, any form of fornication and you want to come out of it, you can ASK GOD, you will IF YOU BELEIVE AND NOT DOUBT.
I urge each of you to yearn to submit your selves under God's loving care; he will take care of you, he will guide you. If you fall, get up, if you slip, jump up and repent and ask God for his guidance and wisdom and when he gives it to you, hear and do it.
Lust can be hard, fornication can be hard(for you) but nothing is too hard for God. God will deliever you out of your enemies hands; if you want it, ask for it. Receive what God has for you, TRUST HIM. Lust will not be allowed to destroy your walk with Christ, God will give you a spiritual break through, all chains of lust will be broken.
