Virginity a sign of dignity

05 January 2015, 22:30

I often hear people make statements like “you are a virgin because you lack opportunity” and I will like to correct that notion first before any further statement.

Virginity is a sign of dignity and never ever a lack of opportunity especially for those who know what it means to be a virgin.

Please this paper is strictly for the singles or let me say the unmarried people at such our discussion covers all your life before the “Yes I Do”. We have heard and got so many ideas on the issue of virginity, as a matter of fact the term virginity is not a new topic in the church but for emphasis and necessity shall we be considering some few issues on the topic.

Medically virginity is streamlined to the feminine gender with the issue of an un-ruptured hymen in the sexual organ which i shall not be boring you with. Although virginity has being streamlined to the female man in the medical line and in the popular believe we shall be digressing a little from that opinion by adding that the male man too can be a virgin.

Virginity literally has to do with absolute abstinence from sexual activities of any sought (mind you it’s before marriage). And as a man of valour or lady of integrity, it’s necessary to keep your body and all your parts under perfect control as clearly stated in romans 12; 1 aside from that they are some benefits you may not be able to enjoy from God when defiled sexually.

Taking David and Ahimelech the priest as a case study (sacred bread) and a whole lot more like in 1 Thessalonians 4;3 where Gods will is clearly stated against sexual immorality.Practically they are other benefits of being a virgin like for instance its being medically proven to be impossible for a virgin to be infected by sexually transmitted diseases like staphylococcus, syphilis and the likes generally referred to as STIs.Also you know as well as I do that it’s impossible for a pregnancy case or unplanned paternity for a virgin at such maintenance of your virginity keeps you in check and focused.

Furthermore your ability to maintain your virginity is to a great extent a representation of your ability to control your own body. Better put it shows your level of self-control and maturity as the true big guy or lady is that particular person who can control his or her emotions.

Finally the best gift you can ever give to your spouse is your virginity. But beyond this practical benefits remember Romans 12; 1.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — this is your spiritual act of worship”.

That notwithstanding there is a place for those who have missed it either as a result of ignorance or deliberate mistakes but have acknowledged their mistakes and are willing to make amends because God is an ever willing to forgive God and whoever he has forgiven is forgiven indeed.

For those who choose to misuse his mercy be aware that we can’t continue in sin that grace may abound.

There is judgment!
