WHY CAN’T I ALLOW HER PASS THE NIGHT IN MY ROOM? by Peyor Humphrey
A lady informed me one day that she was coming
to pay me a visit. I told her she’s welcomed and
that I would be expecting her. Then she said, ‘I will be sleeping over o’. I
replied no problem, that I will make arrangement
with one of my fellowship sisters or my neighbour
so she could put up with any of them for the night.
She said she wouldn’t like that. Then I asked to
know what she wanted, she said she would like to
stay in my room.
I told her it won’t be possible because I don’t
allow ladies pass the night in my room except they
are in group of two, three, etc. in which case I will
leave the room for them.
She told me it doesn’t matter now and that she’s
not having any ulterior motive; and that she will
ensure nothing happens.
I replied her and said, it really does matter.
Number one reason is that I am representing
Christ in my environment. Will Jesus be in the
same room overnight with a lady He is not married
to? Let assume nothing happened, what do we tell
or how do we convince people that sees the two of
us come out from the same room the following
morning. Definitely that’s an appearance of evil
that the Bible instructs us to abstain from.
Secondly, let assume we didn’t touch each other in
the night, will our hearts still remain pure? Won’t
it be filled with lustful thoughts?
What then was my response? I told her all those
things I described above. At this point, she was
bored. Then she decided she wasn’t going to come
again if I won’t allow her sleep in my room. I
replied and said that’s OK by me, she may not
bother to come.
That was not the first experience I’ve had over
the years. The temptation comes in aliquot. But one
thing had kept me; I will not do anything I’m
convinced Christ will not do.
Cohabitation is very common among campus people
these days, even among brothers and sisters in
Allowing a lady who is not yet your wife to pass
the night in the same room with you is like
tempting the Devil to destroy you. It is like
scoring a goal for the other team.
Sister, allowing ‘Bro’ to sleep in the same room
with you is one of the signs of compromise of
virtue and backsliding.
Let’s keep the standard high. Holiness of heart
and life is still the key into the kingdom of Heaven.
Being engaged is not the same as being married.
He’s not authorised to touch your body until he
has paid your bride price.
The beginning of backsliding is little little
compromise. Let’s hold on. Purity pays for life and
I’ve made up my mind to be a Christian, I mean a
Christian… Not an hypocrite! What about you?
I copied it, u are free, its worth copying and sharing,
let them hear, let them see, let them read n let them think.
