Day 47 – Victory over Sexual sin

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (NLT)

Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

This entire chapter is a hard read, but extremely important and necessary. Newly born-again people must hear what is being proclaim here and older Christians need to be reminded of these timeless truths. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you assimilate this chapter and to make it real in your life. Is fleeing from sexual sin easy? Is choosing to honor God with your body easy in the face of rampant disregard for Biblical morals? Is doing what is Biblically correct easy? No! But with the help of the Spirit of God it can be. In fact, only through the Holy Spirit can we truly live in victory. The Joy of the Spirit-filled life is in knowing we are His temple and we’ll do all we can to live in a way that honors that privilege.
