VALENTINE’S DAY: DON’T FOLLOW BLINDLY

There is a danger that Valentine’s Day becomes an opportunity for the carnal to take over because the voices of consumerism, media and Satan gang up to push young people beyond God-sanctioned boundaries. So much of modern culture entices us to pamper our bodies: massage armchairs, perfumed soap, sumptuous dining, fine wines, bubbly jacuzzis, designer clothes, spa treatments, luxury cruises etc. Why not? - after all we deserve it don’t we?  One local radio station proclaims their mantra many times per day: “Sounds good, FEELS good!” Another oft-heard myth is “If it feels good, do it!” and yet another - “It’s MY body and I’ll do what I like with it!” These brazen temptations hit us daily, constantly.  So if we follow their lies, there is a good chance we can become hooked on drugs, fall into premarital sex, experiment with homosexuality, commit adultery, indulge in one-night-stands, go for abortions, fool around with married people, etc, just to show the world we are in control of our bodies and our sexuality.  

WATCH OUT CHRISTIAN DISCIPLES! This feel-good, pleasure-seeking attitude can destroy you! Instead, the apostle Paul says in I Corinthians 6:18-20 “Flee sexual immorality. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God. You are not your own; you are bought with a price. Therefore honour God with your body.”

From this brief passage, we learn firstly that God created our bodies, and therefore He knows best how they should function. Sex is God’s gift only for married couples. Sexual relations outside marriage, whether pre-marital or extra-marital is wrong in God’s eyes. Secondly God inhabits the believer’s redeemed body as the Holy Spirit, who yearns for us to be holy as He is holy. Thirdly, we belong to Him not to ourselves. In Christ, holiness is the hallmark of our Christian discipleship. How can we pursue that which is ungodly and fleeting, and which may likely hurt others, as well as myself, not to mention grieve God?

We are God’s Holy People, and we must live by His Holy Word in the midst of an unholy generation. First Peter 1:15 says: “Just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do..” When you became a Christian, you committed yourself to God – mind, body and spirit! The apostle Paul says, “I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20). Never forget that! Lead a holy life!
