Waiting for sex plays a part in our pursuit of purity, but if we think that is all purity consists of, we sell ourselves short. When God made us, He made us in His image and gave us purpose.Purity is to live a life within the purpose God designed us for.
However, although saving sex for marriage is what God desires, this act in and of itself does not make us pure.
When we simplify purity to only one action (abstaining from sex until marriage) we truly have not grasped the truth and beauty of purity.
