Every February 14 is Valentine’s Day. While it is being celebrated in different ways by different people, one general and famous word attached to the day is “Love”. So, it is believed that the whole idea is to celebrate ‘love”. But that’s where the problem lies. For many, when talking about love, they are actually referring to lust, infatuation, and sex. 

This is why a lot of folks equate Valentine’s Day to a day of sex galore. And of course, Valentine’s Day has become a tool used by the devil to plunder immoral people on the bed of sexual immorality, and he gains access to “steal, kill, and destroy” (John 10:10)

The truth is, you can’t know how to show love if you don’t know Love. God is Love. So you must first know God (Love) before you can know how to express true love. If you are not for Christ and you keep swimming in sin, you can’t know God (i.e have an intimate relationship with God), and whatever it is you are calling love is not true (you can’t give what you don’t have)

So, whenever I hear cases where people that claim to be in love are still hurting one another (cheating, heartbreaks, guys raping their girlfriend, etc), I’m not usually surprised. You can’t give what you don’t have. Your partner can’t show you true love if he/she doesn’t have an intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ (because your partner doesn’t know how to). Anything such a person is calling love is simply false. Yes, a scam. Your unbelieving partner can’t help but break your heart, because his/her nature is still perverted and self-seeking. Only an intimate relationship with Jesus can get us transformed.

How You Can Avoid Defiling Yourself On Valentine’s Day 

The kingdom of darkness lavishly saturates the atmosphere every February 14th with lust (having understood the significance given to it by imperfect humans). Hence, a lot of people find themselves defiling themselves either intentionally or not.

God’s Will concerning sexual pleasure is that all forms of sexual pleasure should be shared only between a married man and his female wife in the safe confines of their marriage institution, with no other party involved.

Anything else outside of this is wrong, sinful, and harmful. 

God frowns at sexual immorality, and there are great repercussions attached to sexual sins. Don’t have sex with your boyfriend/girlfriend or your fiance/fiancee until you get married to them. If you have planned such this Valentine’s Day, God is giving you an opportunity to destroy such plans (it’s not a mistake that you came across this article), to avoid regrets. If your boyfriend/girlfriend or fiance/fiancee is insisting on sex, it means they are only after your body, and are not God’s Will for you (so, wisdom demands you break free from such a relationship).

To avoid defiling yourself, yield to God’s word and avoid sin of any type. When you have an intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, you will always be determined to please Him and obey all His commands. Also, avoid people, places, situations, and things that can lure you into dipping your hands in something bad.
