PSG defender David Luiz has revealed he will abstain from sex following his recent ‘baptism’
The former Chelsea man was baptised in the swimming pool of club team-mate Maxwell, and is now a member of the Pentecostal Hillsong Church.
And since the holy blessing, Luiz has vowed to abstain from sex with his girlfriend Sara Madeira until they are married.
The Brazil international posted a photo of the ceremony onto his Instagram account, stating that he has ‘chosen to wait’, followed by a Bible verse from Corinthians.
“I have chosen to wait,” the 28-year-old Brazilian said.
Luiz was baptised in the swimming pool of PSG teammate Maxwell on Friday and he took to Instagram to devote his life to God.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV),” Luiz wrote.
“How wonderful to live with you Lord, thank You for loving me so much and taking care of me!
“My life is yours, and I am your servant! You’re always in the center of all my decisions! I love my God! Amen”.
The defender met his girlfriend Sara, 23, when they were teenagers and he now says they have decided to wait until they are wed.
Luiz is not the first footballer to take the vow of celibacy with former Real Madrid man Kaka previously claiming that he was a virgin until marriage.
