Furthermore, when it comes to sex, young people may be pleasantly surprised to hear what their Creator has to say about the subject. Like a present to be opened at Christmas, God has a perfectly crafted season for you to enjoy this special gift. Let it be known that God says, "Yes to Sex! As a young adult you have a lot to deal with. Between the challenges of school and thoughts of the future, looking for a real friend, family drama and still, after all that, endeavoring to enter adulthood with some framework of character and fear of God, your life can probably get overwhelming.
I do not want to make you feel any more insecure than you might feel already or predict a grim report about your future. You have a huge future ahead of you in God but you also face a legitimate uphill climb to reach it.
Simply put, your life demands courage. Christian or not, it may seem easier to live sexually active and not bother swimming against the current of sexual acceptance or even deal with the peer pressure of resisting. Your thoughts might be: Well, I believe that God has a message for you to hear and my hope is that some of those helpful tools will be found in this book.
Sexual integrity according to the Bible is not about perfectionism. Just as easily as Christians can get sloppy and loose in this area, the best of us, on the flip side, can get legalistic and critical. God simply wants your whole heart. He wants you to welcome Him in every part of your life, including that part of you concerning sex, relationships and future marriage. God sees your desire to please Him and your passion to reach for Him in this area. His instructions are for our benefit.
His heart is for our good. Therefore this God-journey is intended to bless you. May this book be fuel for your specific and adventurous journey. You are special to God. Your desire for sex and marriage is God-given. He understands you and is bringing you into a place of significance and value.
