My Thoughts
1 Corinthians 6:19
New International Version (NIV)
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
Colossians 3:5
New International Version (NIV)
5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

Hebrews 13:4
New International Version (NIV)
4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

God intends that you will have one marriage bed in the history of your life. For example: just like we could sit down and see every day President Abraham Lincoln lived we would be able to see that from day one to his last there was only one place with one person he had sex. It didnít matter if he was young and unmarried for he knew that one day he would have the joys of that intimate expression and he preserved himself to keep the marriage bed pure. Then while he was married he withheld adulterous affairs that would have defiled the marriage bed, within marriage. So within marriage and outside or before marriage everyone has a job to do in keeping their marriage bed pure.
This is contradictory to our culture. Television, Movies, Books, Songs that are popular talk about defiling the marriage bed by having sex without a marriage commitment, and beyond that they never show the consequences of a defiled marriage bed. The result is a defiled and broken culture. The strong building blocks of a culture and country start with strong families made up of a Father, Mother and children. When that family structure starts to crumble, the country will fall.
What does that mean, it means committing now, as a teenager, to saying no when an opportunity arises to have sex. It means committing now to not looking at naked women, or anything pornographic on the internet or magazines or cable tv or anywhere. It means committing now to not masturbating to have an orgasm outside of marriage.

Why do this? For the Lord, to honor Him and His words. Itís not to be done as a commitment to your spouse, although they will certainly benefit from it, it is to be done only unto the Lord. When your spouse does something that violates the marriage commitment that is no reason for you to change your commitment to the Lord in your marriage. It doesnít matter what your spouse does, it only matters that you love God by honoring your marriage.
So what do you do as a teen. When you go out, go out in groups of 4 or 5 or more. Invite all your friends to church functions, and school functions so that itís not awkward. Such functions have lots of teens anyway and it is much better than inviting a few people to Panara Bread for lunch or dinner and having only one show up, leaving you are in a situation with no other teens except the one.
Pray for your future spouse. As a teen it is safe to say your spouse, if you are to marry, is alive and going through similar life situations as you. You may know them or probably not, but you can still pray for them.
Learn how to be a good man or woman so that you can fulfill your role as husband or wife. Do a Bible study on the character and work of a good man. A man qualified to be a deacon or elder in a church even. Do a Bible study on the character and work of a good woman.
ďSome people wait till it rains to prepare their fields, but other prepare their fields in faith that God will send the rain when the fields are read.Ē Prepare yourself for the time you are married and you will be satisfied in your marriage.
