Flee From Sexual Immorality

"The body is not meant for sexual immorality,
but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
By His power God raised the Lord from the
dead, and He will raise us also.

Do you know that your bodies are members
of Christ Himself?
Shall I then take the members of Christ and
unite them with a prostitute?
Never! Do you know that he who unites
himself with a prostitute is one with her in
body? For it is said, 'The two will become
one flesh.' But he who unites himself with
the Lord is one with Him in spirit.

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins
a man commits are outside his body, but he
who sins sexually sins against his own body.

Do you not know that your body is a temple
of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you
have received from God?
You are not your own; you were brought at
a price.
Therefore honor God with your body."

1 Corinthians 6: 13b- 20

When we have accepted Christ as our Lord and savior and have surrendered our lives to Him, the Holy Spirit made our spirits alive and He dwells in us as His own temple. Our bodies will be raised at the second coming and will be transformed into glorified bodies by the same Holy Spirit to meet the bridegroom who is Christ. Therefore, we must honor God with our bodies, making sure that we do not dishonor and pollute it by sexual sins. We offer our bodies to God as living sacrifices holy and pleasing in His sight. We must be thoroughly clean- body, mind, heart and soul when we meet our God.

Great Post Kuya Mel, just in time for the lent. This is what we need to remind us all the time that we have to protect our body which was given to us in HIS likeness.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you who dedicately visited my blog when I was away vacationing. I am glad to be back on blogging, and I miss it a lot lol.. Have a happy Sunday!

Hi Rose,
One of these days the Lord will be coming back and we will be giving an accounting of everything we did including how we took care of our physical body which will be changed into a spiritual body. Thanks for your appreciation. You are a good and faithful blogger that is why your readers are loyal to you. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

its very easy for us human beings to get tempted towards sexual pleasures...and most people in this world find good reasons to justify what they are doing is correct...

nice post..

I haven't been able to find correct reasons still to speak against it but wud agree to you on certain points

Hi Priya,
Sex should be in the confines only of marriage. Any other sexual acts are sinful and will only pollute our mortal bodies which we must preserve till the coming of the Lord where He will transform our physical bodies into glorified bodies. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Addicted in America,
I am just quoting and interpreting some Bible verses. It's not for me to say whether it's doable or not. Thanks for your visit and very kind words but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. God bless.
