Sexual sin is different from other sins because sexual sin needs to be avoided, not necessarily wrestled with. The answer to avoiding sin is guarding our hearts and minds. Avoid sin by walking close to God and not allowing the temptation to get you off track in the first place, be aware of your weaknesses and avoid putting yourself into a situation that will tempt you at a weak moment!

Do not be playing checkers while the devil has been playing chess! Do not take spiritual warfare lightly because it is true that the devil is out to steal, kill and destroy you and me. We would lie if you claimed that we do not know what sin is because God planted it in us. Yes, the devil confuses your thoughts since that is par for the devil’s course. Yet, God gives us a way to be strong in the Lord.  The trick is not to get close to sin or temptation because our spirit may be willing, but our flesh is weak. When we fall into sin, we must immediately confess our sin (1 John 1:9) to God and ask for forgiveness. ~ Bill Greguska

Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
