“Flee from sexual immorality. All other since a man commits are outside his body, but thosewho sin sexually sin against their own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of th Holy Spirit, who is in you. whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought a t a price. Therefore honour God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:18-20
It is no secret that Satan’s main weapon is sex. You can judge by almost anything you can see around you. from a simple TV commercial to the thousands porn websites on the web. “Sex sells” that is what marketing people say and yes that is right.
So yes! We are invaded from every corner of our daily living by sexual related content. Should we use this as a justification to say “Ohhh I am weak and I cannot hold to this pressure, everybody does this, why should’nt I?” This is what the flesh is telling you.
What about the voice of the spirit? All those of us who accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour know that all is new and the old has gone for good and now we live a new life. It is for this reason why the above scripture states that we were bought with a price. Yes Jesus’ blood is that price.
Is that all? Not at all, Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:13 stated that God is faithful enough in providing us a way and power to over come temptation. Arewe using that power today? Are we holding on to God’s amazing promise found in Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ who gives us stength?
We all know that all those who endure till the end will enter the Lord’s rest. That should be our end goal but there are also rewards in this world too, the power to live free from the bondage of sin is priceless. A new life full of everlasting peace, experiencing the true joy of living in harmony with the One who wants to give us victory over every area in our lives.
The promises are there for your to take hold of and use. May you truly have a deeper revelation of what being a temple of the Holy Spirit means……. may these words bless your heart this morning as you meditate on God’s awesome love for you.
