Sexual sin warps, poisons, and plunders the soul. In its path follow immeasurable havoc, confusion, and anguish. But in spite of its painfully high costs, sexual sin often develops a powerful hold on both men and women. A person can know he is wrecking his family, destroying his character, and bringing shame to the name of Christ; he can be remorseful, ashamed, and even hate himself and what he has become—and still return repeatedly to the same ruinous sins.
Thank God there is grace!
