This was a question I had from a student at Setting Captives Free. I thought it was so good I had to share it!
how do I glorify God in my purity? How does my purity bring him glory? Is it when I can tell others he helped me? Is it when I assist in God’s helping others? Or is it just being pure that gives him glory? I know how my freedom will benefit me, but how will my freedom benefit God? How can I do it for him when I don’t know what he gets from it? Perhaps if I knew what I’m doing for him by being free, it will be easier to stop focusing on what I get out of it.
(My answer) By showing He is of greater value than porn or any other thing my friend. When I value my wife I show it by my waiting for her…she is of that value to me. God is always about his worth because there is nothing greater. So to wait on the Lord shows His Glory because it puts greater value on God, than another. God is happy and God is pleasurable. The way this is shown to the World is by His redeemed that find greater pleasure in Him.
I hope this helps… This by the way is the message of the Bible. God is greater than!
Matthew 10:37 (New King James Version)
37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
