"The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death" (Proverbs 14:27).

Here's a quote from Randy Alcorn's book, The Purity Principle:

"The fear of God shouldn't scare us out of our wits; it should scare us into them... Those who've succumbed to sexual temptation did not do so in their self-interest. Rather, they pursued what what they imagined was their self-interest, what Satan deceived them into thinking was their self-interest. Had they pursued their true self-interest they would have run from temptation as from a slithering cobra or a live grenade. They would have embraced purity as a drowning person grabs a life preserver... When God calls you to pursue purity, you are not being asked to do what will deprive you of joy. In fact, you are being called on to do what will bring you the greatest joy!"
