When I think of purity, I think of my ability to step into the presence of God in abandon, and I think of functioning at my optimum level in ministry and in life. When I think of purity I think of pleasing God, walking in his precepts and embracing his best for me. But sometimes, I miss that mark.
Most men will say that their struggle with purity is a physical one. They love seeing the curves on a beautiful woman, and their appreciation often converts into a desire to touch that which their eyes have deemed beautiful. As a woman, I think I speak for quite a few women when I say that our struggle is one waged in the emotional realm.
