TOPIC: THE BODY IS NOT MEANT FOR SEXUAL IMMORALITY
TEXT: I CORINTHIANS 6:12-20
The biggest temptation confronting the Corinthian Church was sexual immorality; they have gone so low that they no longer consider sex before, after marriage or outside marriage as an issue. Paul reminded them that sexual immorality is a serious sin because our physical bodies are inseparably connected with Christ. Therefore, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and the place where the Holy Spirit dwells must not be a place that should be joined with a prostitute.
Here Paul advanced another reason why we should flee sexual immorality: “you are not your own…”Our bodies with which we commit adultery and fornication are not ours, they are the Lord's. Jesus paid heavily for our redemption. The bottom line is this, honour God with your bodies.
Do you honour God with your body?
I confess that there are times I dishonour You with my body in many ways. Please forgive me, in Jesus name, Amen.
