The Gospel—The Power to Conquer

As you read articles we have posted on our website, we want them to help you become a conqueror of pornographic sin. So we want you to understand the absolute necessity of using the Gospel to motivate you to conquer each temptation as it comes. No matter what we or someone else write in an article or blog to help you, only the Gospel gives you the power to win each battle and ultimately the war.
The Gospel has nothing to do with what you must do or can do or should do in this fight. It is all about everything that God has graciously done for you. It is about God’s only Son setting aside his glory to come here to save sinners like you and me. It is about Jesus, God’s chosen one (Messiah), stepping between us and God and taking his punishment for every time we have lusted and for the multitude of other sins we have committed. It’s about his blood being the antidote for sin’s poison, washing you clean so that you are completely forgiven of every sin, including lust. It’s about him taking his perfect life and covering you with it, so YOU are perfect in God’s sight. Your trust in and use of this—what God has done for you—is the only thing that will equip and empower you to conquer the sin of pornography. This Gospel is found exclusively, but abundantly in the Bible. With the Gospel as your power source, your motivation, we believe the following articles can help you.

More about intimacy in marriage – Women’s Devotion

Conversations about sex can be uncomfortable. Even among Christians, we wonder what should be said. “Less is better” seems to be the advice that many follow. But in the private corner of our heart there is a longing to understand the God pleasing fullness of sexuality in Christian marriage. We desire all its riches, but over time we face a host of insurmountable struggles that attack us at a very personal level. Intimacy can grow cold or loveless and we’re haunted by inadequacy. We have misperceptions, unspoken hurts and guilt. Our own flesh and a sinful world keep us from the beautiful life and delightful gifts God has given to married couples.
