The Purpose of This Book ...

... is not to get you to “do devotions.” I want more than that for you. Any of us can do devotions easily enough. Just pick up a devotional book, read the few verses at the top of the page, glance at the writers comments and say the closing prayer (or read the final poem or quote) and voila – devotions are done for the day. Check that off your list and move on to the next task.

What has that accomplished? Let’s be honest: most of you have done devotions in the past but you’re still struggling with issue of purity in your life. To that end it’s important to understand that this book is not intended to be just another devotional book. It is my deepest desire and passion to help you know real and lasting victory in your life as I have. This is why I have called this “The Pure Man’s Devotional GUIDE.” The intent of this book is to guide you into and through Scripture.

Because of Christ,
Steve (steve @ / 717-4-PURITY)

A Message from the Author

Through the many ups and downs, twists and turns of life, I have seen God work in some amazing (and often unexpected) ways to unite people with the tools that can help them grow in their walk with Him. The fact that you have connected with this webpage is definitely one of them. There is a reason you're here right now.

Please understand my friend that to know real, lasting victory over lust and sexual impurity you must be in God’s Word daily. Not just reading it, but studying it (Ezra 7:10), memorizing it (Psa. 119:11, 16), meditating on it (Josh. 1:8; Psa. 1:2; 119:15), and then obeying it (Psa. 119:9; Jas. 1:22). The things we think about will eventually become the things we do (Prov. 27:19). Only God’s Word will help us focus our mind around things that truly matter (Heb. 4:12). Only Scripture – the Sword of the Spirit (Eph. 5:17) – will take down that horrific beast of lust, pornography and masturbation. That is why I wrote this devotional guide. That is why every page of this book is centered on God’s Word.

By fixing our eyes (and mind) squarely on Scripture, we won't be put to shame by our lustful, sexual impurity (Psa. 119:6). Instead we will keep our way pure, by guarding it according to God’s Word (Psa. 119:9; Prov. 4:23). As we continue to hide God’ s Word in our heart (Psa. 119:11), and intentionally walk in obedience to His Truth (Psa. 119:9), we are able to live a sexually pure life.

The Scriptures contained in this devotional guide aren’t randomly selected verses to fill a page. Each day’s comments aren’t just words to make the book bigger. These are the verses God used (and still uses) in my life to get my mind off self and focused on Him. These are all verses that I use every time the tempter tries to take me down.

As you work your way through each day’s devotion, may God help you to gain understanding so that you will hate every wrong path (Psa. 119:104), and only - always walk the path of purity (Psa. 119:9).

Because of Christ,

(click to read - by Mike Young, Founder - Noble Warriors)

Foreward. I love this word and this concept. I feel like a coach with a team who’s about to engage a challenging contest. Or, perhaps more appropriately, an officer sending prepared but frightened troops into a tense battle.

Staying where you are is not an option. Retreat certainly is, but that only means that the battle must be fought on another day. Forward! Advance! Attack! Positive movement is the only real option.

I hope you feel this… the tension, the opportunity, the adrenaline, the desire to advance, to take ground, to engage the battle. There is no time for hesitation, second thoughts, or softness. The battle for purity is not just in front of you; it’s all around. Gather your courage. Gird up your loins. Prepare for battle!

Why the language of warfare? Because purity is a battle. I’m a men’s ministry guy and I hear stories regularly about the battle men face to live in purity. And—I hope this isn’t a news flash—I have my own battles. I must guard my eyes, take captive every thought, and pray for courage and stamina in the battle.

The good news is this: there is help. And my friend and colleague, Steve Etner, is a veteran of this war. Yet he’ll be the first to tell you that the battles continue. I’m thankful that he is not only willing to share his story with you but he’s completely committed to helping you engage your battles and pursue victory.

In the following pages you’ll meet Steve, hear parts of his story, and be encouraged by his pastor’s heart. But, most importantly, you’ll be challenged to grow comfortable and confident with the only weapon that will provide real help: God’s Word. I’m amazed by Steve’s knowledge of and dexterity with The Sword.

He’ll help you understand the enemy’s tactics and how to respond. He’ll show you how to rightly handle the Word of God. He’ll coach you in the battle and, as you move forward, you’ll hear him shouting instructions and encouragement. Ultimately, you must pick up the weapon and become an expert; but you do so with confidence because you have a worthy King in Jesus and a master instructor in Steve.

The battle is on… Forward!
