I want to write something that will encourage you to honour God in your relationship

If you’re here because you’re hoping I’ll show you a series of diagrams and say ‘this is ok’ and ‘this is not ok’, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re here expecting me to say ‘well, you’re asking the wrong question’, you’ve also come to the right place. But I’m not going to do either of these things… not yet anyway.

Just to give you some background, my name’s Sam, I founded The Bridge with Charlie back in April 2013. As I write this, I’m 22, I’m a uni student and my wife and I have been married for four and a half months. We were together for 5 years before we tied the knot. I know! 5 years! It felt as long as it sounds, but seriously I am so glad we saved sex until marriage. And before I grow to become an old fart and I forget what life was like when we were going out, I want to write something that will encourage you to honour God in your relationship, both now and in the future, but written from the perspective of someone who knows just how hard it can be. And hopefully I can shed some light on why God says what He does about sex.

I don't want to screw up

What can we touch? - I don't want to screw this up

Now let’s look at some practical ways to stay strong in the face of temptation. Staying strong in this area is not easy, and sadly there is no simple formula to make it a piece of pie. However, we can put in place some good principles to help us stay strong.
