Do You Need A Better Hook-Up?
Today, many ladies are “surviving” on hook-ups. Hooking up is a situation whereby as a lady, you register with an agency whose business is to supply prostitutes to men in search of sexual pleasures. Whenever they need you, you are called up. You provide the sexual pleasure and you are paid.
Some ladies do not necessarily register with any agency. They just build contacts potential men to be serviced. Such men are in different categories. Some simply lack happy homes and marriages and need sexual satisfaction outside their marriages. Some have mental health problems they are ignorant of, in form of insatiable sexual urge. Some are merely fun seekers, who wouldn’t mind committing adultery with girls that are of their children’s age. Some are young unmarried men who think just like the ladies that through hook-up runs, they could get someone to settle down with as life partners. Some unmarried young men also indulge in hook-ups with much older women, just for money.
Some financially equipped ladies involved in hook-ups are merely doing it for satisfaction of sexual urge as some have given up on looking for husbands, considering their age and financial status.
If you are in the hook-up industry whether as a beneficiary or operator, this article does not intend to condemn you. Rather, it intends to lend you a thinking cap or rational reasoning capacity.
Today, we are in a world where on a daily basis, we hear stories and see situations where intimate and trusted human beings end up having one of them kill, sell, abuse or rape the other. As a lady, you get a call for a hook-up appointment with a total stranger of a man. You carry yourself to him. He takes you to an undisclosed location where you intend to have sex and get monetary gains. You sheepishly follow him either to his bedroom, a strange hotel room or wherever.
Which sane person will for the sake of money, offer herself to a stranger in such a manner, in this era of ritual killing, cannibalism, rape, kidnap, stray bullets and even unnecessary killings? Is there no elemnent of insanity in such gullibility? No human being that loves himself or herself will do this and there is no condition of lack in this world that should make you wish even your enemy such foolish leap into the valley of destruction.
Like I said, this article does not intend to condemn anyone. “For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him, might be saved” (John 3:17).
Research has shown that most times, the reasons presented for wrong doing, crimes, misconduct or sins are not the actual reasons. For instance, someone says “Well, I am into prostitution; nay, hook-ups because I am jobless and hungry”
Questions! Is it also hunger that pushed you into notorious smoking, drinking and other expensive irresponsible habits attached to prostitution? Is it hunger that wiped from your memory, the natural talents and gift inside of you that would have made you an honourable and possibly rich star in the society? Is it hunger and poverty that made you forget what you endured and went through for many years to secure a degree in the university in order to avoid the same hunger and poverty?
How many men (strange and known) in this world do you think you will offer your precious body for sex before you eventually acquire “enough” money to say you have left poverty? Assuming that even happens, do you think you will still sincerely remain a useful and valuable human being?
Dear friend! Poverty or hunger is not responsible for your life of prostitution. “But every man (or woman) is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then, when lust is conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and when it is finished, it bringeth forth death” (James 1:14-15).
“For the love of money is the root of all evil which some covet after they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1st Timothy 6:10).
Your soul is too precious to God to be sacrificed at the altar of money to eat or drink. Friend! Do you know that the effort you invest in the dangerous hook-up for sex on a regular basis can be invested in a better kind of hook-up?
Consider what you are exposing yourself to. Illicit sex with men (or women in the case of a young guy) could lead to blood infection? Many cases of early seizure of menstrual flow, watery sperm and other reproductive problems are results of infectious diseases secured from illicit sexual intercourse. How about HIV Aids, frequent miscarriages, strange unending migraine headaches and other unending medical problems? The efforts being invested in these channels of death called hook-ups could be invested in a more profitable hook-up lifestyle.
Like every other person, God created you to maintain a connection with your creator for as long as you live in this world. You did not create yourself (Psalm 100:3). Until you realize the fact that you did not create yourself, life will not give you a positive meaning. The rays of lights on your path will keep pointing at the wrong ladder of life; And as long as you remain on the wrong ladder of life, collapse and destruction are inevitable. It i just a matter of time. Forget about the number of people on the wrong ladder. You don’t have to remain one of them because that is not the plan of God, your creator for you.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord: thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11).
You see, until you change the way you look at things, things may never change the way they look. You need to renew your mind (Romans 12:2).
What can you do to be saved? “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
God’s love for you that you are not reciprocating is so strong that he offered his only son, Jesus Christ, to dies for your sins (John 3:16).
Look! There is a better life beyond hook-ups with strangers here and there to destroy your destiny and obstruct your journey to a beautiful future. You can get a new life from Jesus Christ.”Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away. Behold! all creature have become new” (2nd Corinthians 5:17)
It is a privilege that you are reading this article. Today, make the angels in heave to rejoice over you. Repent and forsake your sins. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour. You will be in for a new life, a better life, a better kind of hook-up.
Don’t say, “Well. I am too dirty. Where will I start from?” The blood of Jesus Christ can cleanse you from all unrighteousness and make you a new person. You can start life afresh and find unspeakable joy NOW! Lets talk!
