For days now I’ve had the song “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” stuck in my head. What the heck?! That’s not a song I’ve listened to recently. It’s not a song I’d just choose to listen to. It was popular before I was born (I think). I seriously have no clue why I’d even think about that song! Nonetheless, I couldn’t get it out of my head! I looked it up on YouTube and listened to it several times. It’s a pretty song. I figured that it must hold some meaning for me, if I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
What the song boils down to is, a girl is “giving herself” to a guy. (Back then, a song would’ve never gotten airtime had it actually said “I want to have sex with you.” That just shows you how perverse we’ve become as a society) Anyway, she talks about the guy “giving his ‘love’ so sweetly.” Then she basically asks him if he will STILL love her after she has sex with him. I can assure you, his answer was YES!
The truth of the matter is, sometimes people actually do love each other, and other times a guy will say whatever he has to say to get what he wants. I can promise you this though. No matter if two people truly do love each other, or if they’re just engaging in casual “meaningless” (NO SEX IS EVER MEANINGLESS!) sex, if you’re not married [to that person] the result is the same. T R O U B L E!
You can bet your bottom dollar that doing things out of the order God intended WILL cause trouble! Parents, want to know if your teenager (or actually any dating couple of ANY age) is having sex with their boyfriend or girlfriend? If they start fighting a lot, the answer is most likely “yes they are!” That’s because they’ve opened up a Pandora’s box of emotions they weren’t aware of, or prepared for!
Sex is very meaningful, and contrary to this world, there’s NO SUCH THING AS CASUAL! Sex is a bond between a man and a woman. And no matter how you try to detach yourself from the situation, you can’t! Sorry guys, that goes for y’all too! There are spiritual, emotional, and often times physical implications that come with sex outside marriage.
The world will tell you that it’s ok to have sex with someone if you love them. The world will assure you that you don’t need some piece of paper to declare your love. And it’s NOT the piece of paper! It’s the vow you make before God and others! Think about it! If you’d only had sex with the person you married, there’d be nothing to compare it to! Because let’s face it, the world will tell you that sex has to be “good”. Good compared to what?! Pornography? Other partners?! If your spouse was the only one, how could it NOT be good?! And even if it wasn’t, how would you know?! 🙂 Trust me. If you do things God’s way, IT’LL BE GOOD!
Even if you’ve had sex before. Even if you’ve been very promiscuous. Especially if your innocence was taken by no fault of your own, God can renew and restore! He can make you pure! It’s never too late to do what God requires! And it’s surely never too late for God to make things right! Nothing is too big, or too small for that matter, for God to do!
Sex can’t, and won’t, fill a void. It’s like a drug, it’s only a temporary “good”. A few minutes (if you’re lucky 😊) of pleasure isn’t worth one second of guilt and shame!
Will he still love you tomorrow? Maybe, maybe not. But HE will! God loves you always, no matter what! His love is unconditional, unwavering, and unstoppable! His love for us is bigger, and stronger than we’ll ever know this side of Heaven! Nothing, and I mean NO THING, can EVER separate you from the love of Christ! Not troubles or problems or sufferings or hunger or nakedness or danger or violent death! NOTHING! We can be more than a conqueror with Jesus! Romans 8:31-39
