Will You Rise Up?
[1st Corinthians 6:18-20]
"Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."
How crazy for a women's body to have so much power.
A thought process that occurs through a man, every hour.
Will we RISE UP to stop this feat?
Or take this defeat,
Let it mold us, and shape us, and keep us from being complete.
It's a problem that occurs in every man's mind,
And the way the women dress, makes it so easy to find.
It's a struggle I face, yes - that's present tense,
and for most of you - that doesn't make much sense.
These words you hear, are from a Christian.
And the fact is, it's still hard to give these up to the One who's risen.
You heard it - the struggle is LUST.
The fact that I tell you - is a must!
For some guys, it's a problem of fooling around,
and they keep it a secret - so they won't get found.
For others, it's a problem with the way they speak.
You see, women don't hear it, and the men turn their cheek.
The most common one,
is when the man is alone.
It's the one you ask him about-he never takes up and owns.
A man's sins keep him in shame.
What most people would call- "biblically lame''.
All see a PROBLEM.
I see a SOLUTION.
How we start this - is to stop the pollution.
Most women would say- "I'm not part of this mess.''
But have you ever thought about the way that you dress?
I'm not trying to put the blame on you,
I'm just trying to help you fight this battle too.
Men. I understand.
You think that you can never win,
but when you devote yourself to CHRIST,
you CAN overcome SIN.
Yes, you must think that I'm tripping,
but the way we can fight this,
is the way we've been skipping.
What I'm about to say, is making you nervous.
But you should look at it as a way of service.
We need to speak out,
and talk about the darkness in our lives.
Or else our spiritual life, will just be stabbed by knives.
I'm tired of seeing strong, Godly men in ruin,
and I cannot wait for the day the Devil starts losin'.
And now, my call for you- is to stop being passive.
And the result for God's Kingdom, will be massive.
