Is virginity overrated?

Not long ago, I happened to be in a discussion where many relationship issues were being discussed. One of those issues was virginity.

It was shocking listening to the views of many, some of whom are in the kingdom of God. It was an outright mockery of one of the great values of the kingdom of God - sexual purity.

Mulberry Tree Timing

1 Chronicles 14:14-15
14 Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.

15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.

Orderliness or proper timing is the nature of God. Throughout the bible we come across numerous instances when His orderly nature is brought out.At creation He started with the very basic; light and darkness. How would have the plants photosynthesized without the sun if He had created them before He created the sun? It would have been very bad for the animals with no plants to feed on, if He had created them before creating plants.

What exactly did Jesus come to do?

Besides arguments on who He was, many also debate what He exactly came to do. Some say dying on the cross and others say to demonstrate God's power. Others have no clue because it seems His ministry had so many facets for humanity to grasp.

Luke 4:18-19 presents us with the best overview of His ministry and also where we come in either as co-workers and/or beneficiaries.

Do Not Flatter At The Expense of Repentance

In a time of see no sin and speak not of sin, the church, you and I, have been cornered not to speak of the many ills in our churches and communities at large.

However, if the love of Christ is truly in us we ought to call the nations to godly repentance. Let us not be like the servants of God in the days of Jeremiah. Instead of calling the people to genuine repentance they assured them that no judgment could come upon them. What a lie! What a lie!
