It is quite unfortunate that sexual immorality is now popular in our generation. Despite the fact that we know the consequences but many of us still indulge in that evil act. However, here are 4 things that happen whenever you have sex outside marriage:
1. Broken Relationship
The book of Isaiah 59:2 says:
"But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."
Due to the evil act, the relationship with God is broken and demarcation has been put in place. Your sins are fed his face from you and he is not going to hear you if you cry to him (except you confess your sins)
2. You welcomed and accepted the terms and conditions of death as death is the wages of sin
In Roman 6:23, the Bible says:
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
When you see what you did was that you sold yourself over to death and so you are now accepting death because death is the pride for sin. The wages of sin is death and you have just done something dangerous that could lead to death.
3. The one who sows to please his sinful nature from that nature will reap destruction.
In Galatians 6:8, the Bible says:
"For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."
You opened yourself up for destruction. The phrase 'sinful nature' refers to one's unregenerate, shameless self. Though sinful nature could promise fulfillment, it will lead to nothing but destruction.
4. You cannot inherit the kingdom of God
Read Galatians 5: 19-21
Here, the Bible says that everyone who commits sexual immorality cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Unfortunately, if you die without repenting, you cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
In conclusion, do not be scared because there is hope; do not be scared because you have fallen into sin and then you are feeling that there is no forgiveness for you and you want to walk away. All you need to do is just to admit that you are a sinner and ask God to forgive you all your sins (especially the sin of immorality). Then you will wow that you won't go into that sin again.
