So what’s the big deal? I mean it’s not like you’re a virgin or anything. You’re single and you’re a mom––but girl’s just wanna have fun, right?
What if I told you––wrong? I dare you to keep reading to find out just how having sex as a single mom will steal the power to be the parent you long to be.
What’s at stake?
For an occasional roll-in-the-hay, you crush your passion for Christ. All unconfessed, habitual sin robs believers of our zeal for our Savior.
Do you remember a time in your life when you were so on fire for Jesus? Maybe it was when you first surrendered to Him as your Lord and Savior. Maybe it was later when you were wholeheartedly committed to spending time through Bible study, prayer and fellowship with Him each day. Whenever that time was, if you have moved away from a passionate pursuit of Christ, won’t you take a moment to ponder what drew you away?
If you are having sex outside of marriage, you can be sure this sin will steal your fire for Christ. And don’t be tempted to believe that God is withholding something “good” from you because you are a single mom who can’t have sex. Satan is the great deceiver––and he is good at it. Throughout history, he has been lying to women to seduce them to believe that God is somehow withholding His very best when He tells them to stay away from forbidden fruit.
Just ask Eve what it cost her when she believed the enemy and ate from the tree. In a moment, she died spiritually. Later, when God came to walk with her she hid from Him. Her once sweet fellowship with her Creator had now been exchanged for a lousy bite of fruit.
In the same way, Satan would have single moms believe the world’s view that sex outside of marriage is not that big of a deal. But to God, it is a really big deal that will cost you dearly.
