Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

 Remember the government sexual ethic policy advice, "Just say 'No'?" Maybe it was not so outlandish, at least biblically speaking.

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age...
                                               - Titus 2:11,12 TNIV

In response to God's gift of grace showered upon us is the call to discipleship and godly living. A key element of that is "Just say 'No.'" It's consistent with the summons to self-control and the call to live honoring the Holy Spirit's leading.

So maybe, it turns out that we aren't so much inhibited or prudish, but we're disciplined and Spirit-controlled when we watch over our urges and choices by just saying "No."
