The Promise of Pleasure

God offers you and me hope in surprising way.  He doesn't tell us to lower our standards to a place where we think we can do it on our own strength.  He calls us to embrace the standard of His word - not even a hint of sexual immorality or impurity.  God wants us to despair in our own strength so that we have no other option but to throw ourselves on His grace.

That's the mystery of His plan. You will find His strength in your weakness. As you despair in yourself, you will find hope in Him.  As you turn your back on lust, you will discover that true pleasure is something only God can give.

*Not Even A Hint (Joshua Harris)
