Purity
by Terri Simmons

Let’s focus on the heat of the moment
your arousal’s got you so open, you don’t care if you’ve blown it.
The essence of purity? It’s like you’ve never known it.

The lessons on chastity? You couldn’t buy it back, even if you owned it.
Sex? You’re now in position to condone it.

His cologne, her perfume, it’s got you mesmerized – but it’s torment.
You’re loins are on fire, your embers - no longer dormant.
Let’s face it; you wanna have sex – and the images in your head
rush, like a torrent… river.
Like a muddied terrain, you’ve been dirtied and unclean and weakened and ashamed, at all the filth your eyes have seen, your, hands have touched, much, the body parts of your ex, having unruly affections about the, sanctity of sex, your, passions are aroused - “I want him, he wants me”, we, both think it’s necessary to explore im-purity, we, want to be
intimate but our relationship’s not legitimate, it’s, counterfeit
because we forfeit… purity.

This is the will of God for you, the mighty will of God for you
That you practice holiness and purity in, all you do
That you choose honor over passion, Chastity over action,
in fact, put your arousal on the alter, offer it to the Lord
you can’t afford to be physical, your body should not be explored - outside of marriage…
because that’s not pure
instead, you’re luring destruction to yourself
allowing satan to destroy the value and wealth
in which you were created, in His image…
which is, pure.

This is the will of God for you, the mighty will of God for you
That you practice holiness and purity in, all you do
If you, feel your flesh being aroused, don’t lament
Just change your view of sexual content, and here’s a hint
Pull out God’s word, it’s a blueprint, and it’ll put a dint in your flesh
Don’t, allow this culture to mesh with your belief that ‘waiting’ is beneath, you.

This is the will of God for you, the mighty will of God for you
That you practice holiness and purity in, all you do
Because Purity is more than physical, it’s powerful beyond belief
Even satan knows it, that’s why he’s the thief – coming to kill, steal and destroy
He wants to annoy you with thoughts of sexual tactics, to, pressure you with his word
He wants to blur your concept of everything that’s right
He doesn’t want you to know that purity is ultimately the presence of light, and that light is… Holy -
Only, He can do all that is in first Thessalonians four,
He’ll do that and more, if you let’em
Practice purity. Don’t let anything or anyone spoil your witness or reduce your power,
Don’t let your longings slay your appetite for life
so, live.

This is the will of God for you, the mighty will of God for you
That you practice holiness and purity in, all you do
For God has called us, ALL, to holiness.
