1 Corinthians 6:18-20 HCSB

18. Run from sexual immorality! “Every sin a person can commit is outside the body.” On the contrary,  the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. 19. Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary or the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own. 20. For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body…..

It’s so hard to write sometimes using ones own conviction of sin. What makes it difficult is we open ourselves up for transparency. Meaning that the whole world can now see my weaknesses… With the goal that this write might help you seek Christ and if you have a problem there is hope and recovery!…

Think about this: What would be one of the quickest ways for a family to be destroyed, if not the quickest way. And somewhere in my mind I don’t think this a problem for only men either. I don’t have any statistics that prove this, but all you have to do is turn on your TV to see this. There is also the factor that when I involve myself in sexual immorality I have to be secret about it creating lies and cover ups and more secrets to the point I can’t keep up. And we are not talking about porn, we are talking about all forms of immorality, from lust to porn, to adultery to sexual idolatry. And this is not just a problem in the world, it is a problem with in the church today.

Joseph in the Bible RAN from sexual immorality and still had to suffer consequences when he did nothing wrong. Well I run now but haven’t always and I will be making amends for the harm done for a long time.

I think what these verses are saying: RUN from ALL sexual immorality. It’s a sin committed inside the body because we are Christ Temple where the Holy Spirit lives. So when we commit sexual sin we desecrate the Temple Of God as well, sinning against God. Christ paid for us with a price, His death on the cross is the penalty that was paid for our sin. Past, present, and future sins, He paid in FULL. So in all we do we are to glorify God, yes even with our bodies..

I have stated in recent posts that I’ve been blessed to attend CR, Celebrate Recovery. For me this is where I find Christ’s healing touch and am in recovery. So if you are battling sexual immorality. RUN , Run to Christ and don’t give up . There is HOPE!!!!!
