Immorality

Sex is taking over our society. We can no longer turn on the television, buy cars, and clothes without sex being involved in the advertisement.  Pornography has become a billion dollar a year industry and has managed to infiltrate the true testing, the integrity of pastors, and members.  The body is not for sexual immorality, we are blood bought with the blood of Jesus and we do not belong to ourselves. 

In the church of Corinth, there was sexual acceptance, they compared their appetite for food with their sexual perversions but God has restrictions on both.  They saw sex as an appetite and not a gift to be cherished.   Our philosophy today has not changed much; we believe we can engage in sex as we very well please.  Sex was created by GOD for a loving, committed, monogamous, covenant relationship called marriage. Because of sin, God has turned us over to our vile passions and debased minds.

“Flee sexual immorality” and replace it with the love of God and the fruit of the Spirit. He does not require you to take your clothes off.  “Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you from God, and you are not own.”  For you are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
