Fragments of truth XVII
“ You know I said you cannot go to a store and pick an apple, bite the apple to taste it and then go to the cashier to ask for permission to take it…after paying for it I mean. Na Naija we dey! Who wan chop half apple. And even if you were abroad where some people say you can taste and pay at the counter, there are somethings you sure can do like that, ladies are more precious; fragile content and container. Though Tolu I know you form tough. In the same vain, you can’t sleep with a woman…you know he Bible says in Hebrews 13: 4 that: marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral” he said.
“ You too reason it…marriage is a union. Don’t worry when you come for marriage counseling we’ld explain further. But let me make it clear to you that its not the ceremony I’m talking about, it’s the main course! It’s the real deal my friends.”
“Funmi and I courted for 7 years. And we were in the same university. Right from her part1. And by God’s grace the marriage bed was kept clean, so its possible my dear! It is. Besides, you know the bible said a man shall leave his father and mother and then cleave…not cleave and then leave his father and mother…somethings are just in simple English…we humans like complicating this.” He concluded.
1Cor 6:19 was one big point Pastor hammered on.
“as the temple of the Holy Spirit that means the Holy Spirit dwells in you, He lives in you. You can’t now use that same body to do nonsense…and yes, its nonsense because you have not shown the Lord in the presence of the people that you are taking her!” he said.
He talked about the fisherman that went to the pond.
‘of what use is putting your rod into the pond when you don’t really want to fish yet? One thing leads to another my friends!’ he said.
‘you may say that he wanted to admire the pond…but hello! You had better admire it from afar and be ready to fish before you put your rod into it. Word my friend! Word!’ he said further.
Pastor Matt’s illustrations can be funny sometimes but I knew what he was talking about...
