THE RIGHTEOUS MUST BE BOLD ABOUT THEIR VALUES
Two of my dear Protégés had their pre-wedding photoshoot. It was quite a lovely one but something rose in me when and where I saw them having a very intimate and seductive dance during the shoot.
I called them up and said, “What kind of dance is that?” They both said, “And our hearts did not agree with it. We just did it when the photographer requested we did”. I told them, “You should have resisted such suggestion. It is your own wedding and your convictions and not that of the photographer”. They pulled down that part of their video shoot.
Friend, the righteous is as bold as a lion. Do not allow anyone to put you on the spot where they make you feel like you are “overdoing” things. The fact that it is popular does not mean it is right for you.
We are not called to tolerate sin. We are called to hate sin:
Love is to be sincere and active [the real thing—without guile and hypocrisy]. Hate what is evil [detest all ungodliness, do not tolerate wickedness]; hold on tightly to what is good.
Romans 12:9 AMP
You are not married until you are married. You cannot be sleeping in the same bed and room in courtship. Cohabitation is not Christ-like. You cannot be rubbing private parts in a video shoot, it is not Christ-like. Hate what is evil.
There must never be a hint of sexual immorality among us:
But sexual immorality and all [moral] impurity [indecent, offensive behaviour] or greed must not even be hinted at among you, as is proper among saints [for as believers our way of life, whether in public or in private, reflects the validity of our faith].
Ephesians 5:3 AMP
An ambassador of Christ cannot and must never be an ambassador of lust. Let people call you names but it is better to stand with Christ.
When next anyone under the guise of a profession suggests immorality to you, do not be afraid. You are righteous. The righteous are as bold as a lion. Respond boldly. Take a stand for your faith and conviction in Christ.
