1 Corinthians 10:8-9 (8): We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. (NIV)
When an unmarried person has sex, it’s fornication (Mark 7:20-23). Also, when a married individual has a sexual relationship outside their matrimony, such fellow has committed adultery (Luke 16:18). Every sexual immorality is grievous before God and the body (1 Corinthians 6:9-20). Moreover, it’s not only when we commit the act that we sin but also when we lustfully look at the opposite sex, we have sinned in our heart (Matthew 5:27-32).
But I don’t commit any of these. I’m born again, but at times I fall into temptations of masturbation and pornography. You are defiling your body, which is the Lord’s temple (1 Corinthians 3:17). Oh! Are you that man or woman who cannot but seduce and sleep with anything; both single and wedded? If yes! The Bible describes you as unwise (Proverbs 6:20-35) because while you think you’re enjoying; you are ignorantly destroying your soul and prone to diseases and loss of self-value (Revelation 21:8).
Are you a student living a couples-live, a couple cheating on one another or intended lovers already living together? Indeed, you are walking on the red line. Thus, to avoid immorality, get married (1 Corinthians 7:2, 9) and be faithful (Proverbs 5:15-23). In conclusion, if you are guilty of any of the above; you can be forgiven if you confess, repent, and flee immediately (1 Thessalonians 5:22-24) because as our text also affirms: ‘the wages of this sin, is death’ (Romans 6:23)
Hymn: Take Time to Be Holy – William D. Longstaff (1882)
1. Confess all your sexual sins (mention) and say: Father, forgive and cleanse me with Your blood.
2. Holy Spirit, help me stay undefiled, redeemed and ever clean for God’s use (spend time on this!).
IF YOU LOVE GOD, YOU WON’T DEFILE YOURSELF OR MARRIAGE!
