"Against Our Body..."
“Against Our Body…”
The Spirit gives a succinct command to sum what we have examined in 1 Corinthians 6…
1 Co 6:18
Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Note that we are never promised not to be tempted with such.
We are to resist.
We are to flee…turn…reject.
It is a sin against our own body.
Every other sin is outside the body.
Immorality is “in” the body…against the body.
It has negative fruit.
The body of the Believer is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is within us.
God’s Presence in us.
We are not our own.
We are indwelled by the Most High God.
Bought with a price.
Filled for a purpose.
Therefore, we are to glorify God in our body!
Glorify God in your body.
May we do so.
