Bible Verses to Encourage the Pursuit of Sexual Purity (Free PDF)
Knowing what the Bible says in a particular situation is the best defense against temptation. David says in Psalm 119:11 (NKJV)
Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.
Like the Lord Jesus, we can overcome every temptation with the Word.
That means for sexual purity, you need Bible verses that reveal God’s mind concerning sexual conduct. How that is highly needed in our sexualized culture today where almost anything goes! Even among believers sex out of marriage has ceased to be looked upon as an abominable act before God.
Yet God's Word remains unchanged.
That is why I've gathered this list of Bible Verses to help the Christian Single who wants to honor God with their bodies.
I had intended to publish the verses here as plain text. But I reasoned that you might forget as soon as you leave this site. Therefore, I made a PDF which you can download and print out.
Paste the Scriptures where you can be reminded of them. God's Word has power to influence and shape your decisions. Meditate on these until the truth is engraved upon your heart that sexual purity is God's standard. Then when you are faced with temptation, the Holy Spirit will bring the Word to your remembrance, enabling you to overcome.
You are not a fanatic to seek to flee sexual immorality. That is normal Christian living.
I have written more on Sexual Purity which will be published as a free ebook. You might want to bookmark this site and check later for the updates.
If you can't download, here are the plain references which you can copy and read from your Bible.
I Corinthians 5:9-11 13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Ephesians 5:5-7, Hebrews 12:16, Hebrews 13:4, 1 Corinthians 6:18-20, 1 Corinthians 6:13, Ephesians 5:3, Colossians 3:5, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5, 1 Corinthians 10:8
I'm glad you came to this site, so as you download your document, and before you go, let me give you my two recommendations for every Christian single.
If you don't have an intimate relationship with the Lord, you need to. That might just be what you need to enforce sexual purity in your life. Knowing the Word is not enough. Many singles, as well as married persons, still commit sexual sin even while they can quote Scriptures about sexual immorality being wrong.
It is the influence from a living relationship with Jesus that diminishes the appeal of sin in your life. It is in close fellowship with God that the Fear of the Lord becomes real to the believer, and helps him love what God loves and hate what He hates.
See why you need to pursue intimacy with God as a single.
The second recommendation is on the importance of knowing and fulfilling God's purpose for you. Many singles live aimlessly, idly waiting for marriage. They feel empty, without focus and direction. As a result they tend to look at relationships as an escape from a miserable life, and may even fornicate because the opportunity promises some form of fulfillment.
Coupled with pursuing intimacy with God, living a life of purpose as a single is one powerful way of keeping you on track. Sexual immorality not only is abominable, but equally a serious distraction. You want to honor God, and to fulfill all that He wants for you. Sexual sin can stop you, it has brought down many a man, and stop many youths from fulfilling their God-ordained destinies. But you don't have to let it.
If you haven't done so yet, download Bible Verses to Encourage the Pursuit of Sexual Purity.

I was desperate for marriage. I couldn't bear the thought of another year without getting married.
