Caught Being Godly: Watch Rebecca St. James’ Inspiring Talk on Purity and Marriage!

Ladies, the video clip I wanted to share with you on this week’s Caught Being Godly is not a recent one, but its definitely one that should be shared!

It’s a message about purity and faithfulness that Rebecca St. James gave during a concert. She has always been an advocate for purity, and I found the video so sweet! I really hope you take a moment to watch the whole thing and share your thoughts with us.

If you haven’t heard her song “Wait For Me,” check it out below!

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Hey sweet girls, what do you think about this video? Do you agree with St. James?

    I personally don’t like her voice (So I read her lyrics rather then listening to them lol) but she’s one of the greatest role models for girls… one of my role models as well.

    This is a great message! But what about emotional purity? Its synonym can really be “daydreaming” or “fantasies”. The Bible talks about “Taking every thought captive” and thinking about “Whatever is true, whatever is pure, whatever is right, whatever is admirable…” Well, if you think about your crush or another boy, and even if it’s not inappropriate, you’re making emotional connections that you shouldn’t, not to mention they’re normally one-sided. Also, if you’re thinking about him more than God, then that’s bad as well. I used to be concerned just about physical purity, but emotional purity is important, too: actually, just as important! You will have a LOT more chances to have a chance to sin in your thoughts than with the physical side, so remember to guard your thoughts toward a boy.
    I learned that from the “Radiant Purity” conference I went to this year. I’m paraphrasing, though. πŸ˜›

      That is a really good thing to point out. I think emotional purity is just as important as physical purity. I think I need more conviction in that area. Thanks for sharing!

    People like Rebecca are such great role models- they are examples of living happily as God’s obedient child. They put hope in girls’ hearts who are struggling.

    For all the high school girls out there: I am 23 years old and I dated my future husband for 3 years in high school. While everyone else thought it was acceptable to express their love by giving themselves completely, we believed that sex should be pure and decided to commit to waiting. This was no easy task, but it was completely worth it! Sex brings confusion and sometimes emptiness among young women because there is no insurity that the relationship is forever. When a women gives her body, she gives her heart. And you will want to be with him all the time. I had no insecurities on our wedding night. I did not have to worry about measuring up to his past girlfriends since he was also a virgin. We exchanged our purity rings during our wedding ceremony and it was so romantic! I also started praying for him when I was 14 before we even met. I prayed for his purity and that he would put God first I his life. That is what I got. I met him a year later. I chose to be single until I found a Godly man that God wanted me to date. These are hard to find! But trust me, God will give you a Godly man if you want one. Waiting was very hard during the 3 years of dating. And yes we got married young because we wanted to give ourselves to each other completely. Sex is an intimate expression of love that is between 2 people and should not be shared with past boyfriends or girlfriends. Waiting was hard but I respected his commitment to God and chose to not tempt him into doing something he would regret later.

    Awwww. Rebecca’s song reminds me of a song I wrote almost 2 years ago for the man God will give to me when the right time comes. Nobody has heard the song, and I am holding it out for him so that he will hear it first! I pray that I find that similar happiness Rebecca has found with her now-husband, they are such an inspiring couple. πŸ™‚
