Sex & Grace // Grace Covers What Sex Exposes
Grace: it’s everything we need and embodies what we could never give ourselves. And thank goodness because we all have our hiccups and failures.
Sex is a beautiful gift when enjoyed in the way it was designed but as we’ve learned, it’s so often misused. When that happens and you feel utterly forsaken, it’s not the end. You may feel ashamed for the choice you’ve made but friend, please know there’s hope for restoration.
When you need it most God extends a gift that is better than anything else in this world. His grace abounds just when you thought all hope was lost. I know from personal experience. After I had sex outside of God’s design, I felt so ashamed. I thought there was no hope in my rock bottom. I felt like God would never want to give me another chance.
But once I got outside of my emotions (which the enemy fought to keep me in) and I stepped into the truth of who God is and what He desires for me, I found grace abounding more than ever before.
Grace isn’t an excuse to sin but it is God’s gift to a truly repentant heart. If you’ve failed and feel sorrowful, repent and embrace His grace. God doesn’t desire for you to wallow in your sin—that’s the enemy’s desire. Your Father longs to draw you close and speak tenderly to your guilt-ridden heart. To show you the grace Jesus extends to those who would call upon His name.
There’s an important note however in Scripture: go and sin no more. (John 8:11)
Repent and receive His amazing grace! But then go and live fully in Him!
