Flee from sexual immorality

“Flee from sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”  ~ 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Well I know this is not the most popular topic, but last time I checked it’s in the bible and we need to hear and receive the truth of God’s word and obey it. Paul is not saying sexual sin is worse then all other sin. He is saying that sexual sin is different than all other sins. I think you would agree There is something about abusing sexuality, about expressing sexuality in an inappropriate way. It kind of just follows you around it’s like no other category(been there done that prior to giving my life to Christ five years ago). There is something about our sexuality that’s far deeper then what’s simply physical. All other sins a person commits are outside the body. Whoever sins sexually sins against their own body. In other words when you sin sexually(which the bible clearly states that is anything outside the bonds of marriage between a man and a women), when you are irresponsible with the expressions of your sexuality. Paul says you hurt yourself. He says there are many sins you can commit and you feel bad about and say your sorry and you move on.

So what would you expect God who loves you to say, except flee from sexual immorality. If you’re a Christian, a Christ follower then He is speaking directly to you. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and that is meant be used to glorify God. Then He says you’re not your own, you’re inhabited by the living God. You don’t belong to you anymore, you and I we’re bought with a price. When Christ died for our sins He paid for your sins and mine. When you pay for something, you receive something, and when you acknowledge that Christ died for your sins, God paid for you, you are not your own. Then He draws the logical conclusion is honor God with your bodies. We as followers of Christ have been called to honor God with our bodies as it relates to your sexuality and your expressions of your sexuality. If I’m looking at you from a across the table as a single person, my advice would be to stay out bed and honor God, make it habit of honoring God with your bodies. Trust me you will be glad you did, just as in some cases that you are sorry that you didn’t.  It’s really none of my business what you do with your body, you don’t belong to me, you belong to God, and you were bought with a price. I just want to encourage anyone single like I did myself 5 years ago to honor God with my body and remain pure until until I’m married to the woman God has chosen for me.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
