How To Stop Sexual Sin

In this article we are going to go over several ways you can stop sexual sin in your life.

How To Stop Sexual Sin

Define Your Sexual Sin

Define your sexual sin. What is sexual sin? What is the difference between sexual sin and sexual temptation?

Sexual temptation is not necessarily a sin, but it can lead to sin. Sexual temptation includes things like lust, pornography, masturbation and other forms of sexual addiction: any activity that involves sexually gratifying oneself or another person outside of marriage.

Determine The Cause Of Your Sexual Sin

  • Determine The Cause Of Your Sexual Sin
  • Ask yourself why you are tempted to sin. Spend some time in prayer asking God to show you the root cause of your temptation, then write down what you believe that root cause was.
  • Ask yourself why you sin. Again, spend some time in prayer asking God for wisdom and understanding as to why it is so easy for you to slip into sexual sin. What is it about this particular act that draws you? Do certain situations make it more likely for the temptation to arise? Are there times when the temptation does not arise? Write down any thoughts or feelings that come up during this time of reflection and meditation on God’s Word.
  • Ask yourself what can do personally do stop sinning sexually—if possible—or avoid temptation altogether until after marriage (or until after a specific period of time). Write down any ideas or strategies that come up during this exercise in self-reflection on how else could avoid sexual temptation besides just avoiding sex altogether until marriage (or a set period). It may help if while thinking through these questions, write them out by hand rather than typing them into a computer!

Change Your Associations

  • Change your associations.
  • Avoid people who encourage you to sin sexually. This includes:
  • Your spouse if he or she is not committed to sexual purity, even if you are married.
  • Close friends who make excuses for your behavior, or who have the same struggles as you do.
  • Avoid places where others might tempt you to sin sexually. This includes:
  • Places where there’s a high concentration of single people (bars, parties) or large gatherings of males and females (church picnics).
  • Avoid situations that make it easy for you to commit sexual sins (e.g., being alone with someone).

Change Your Thoughts

The second way to stop sexual sin is to change your thoughts. This may seem like a difficult task because we are so used to thinking the same way, but it’s not as hard as it seems. You can change how you think by changing your associations, actions and feelings.

You can start by avoiding anything that has been associated with sexual sin in the past—such as pornography or sexually explicit books or movies—and replacing these things with wholesome entertainment such as reading Scripture, listening to uplifting music or watching wholesome television shows or movies. You should also avoid spending time with people who encourage you in this area of your life (they may unknowingly be tempting you).

Next, after avoiding any association that could lead back into sexual sin, take action by doing something positive instead (such as reading Bible verses related to purity). For example: Instead of watching an X-rated movie tonight on TV at home alone when no one is around; go out for dinner with friends instead!

After taking action against temptation from outside sources, work on changing how we feel about ourselves when tempted by lustful thoughts towards women/men we encounter daily through social media sites like Instagram etcetera…

Take Action To Stop Sexual Sin

  • Taking action is the most important step to stop sexual sin.
  • Pray. Ask God to help you stop sexual sin.
  • Talk with someone you trust and can talk openly with about your struggles, like a parent or older sibling.
  • Read the Bible regularly, especially when dealing with temptation (Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 7:1-5).
  • Use the internet wisely by finding resources that will help you deal with temptation in your life, like Christian counseling services and support groups for people who struggle with sexual sin (find those in your area by searching online). If at all possible, find a church or youth group where you can find fellowship among other Christians who are working through their own temptations as well!

If you struggle with sexual sin, God can help you overcome your sexual sin.

If you struggle with sexual sin, God can help you overcome your sexual sin. It’s important to remember that God has not abandoned you because of this struggle. He’s there for you and wants to help change your thoughts and associations so that they line up with His will for your life.

In order to be successful in overcoming sexual sin, it’s important to know what God says about it. The best place to start is by reading 1 Corinthians 6:18-20, which tells us that we were all made in God’s image (verse 19) and therefore should treat others how we want others to treat us (verse 20). This means being respectful towards others when they say no or when they tell us something makes them feel uncomfortable or unsafe. We all have a responsibility as followers of Christ who follow His example in everything we do—even our actions around sexuality!
