1 Corinthians 6:15-20

“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”


-Paul declares that the believer’s body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Since the Holy Spirit lives in a believers body, one cannot claim ownership of his or her body. God purchased our entire selves with His precious blood, and our bodies belong to Him. In building up God’s temple then, we are called to flee from sexual immorality which defiles our bodies. Sexual immorality may comprises of, and is not limited to:- adultery, fornication, gaysm, lesbianism, mastubation, pornography, looking at others lustfully etc, that joins one with harlotry. We are called to be stewards of our own bodies, and take good care of ourselves. Further that, the body is not self sustaining but it belongs to the Holy Spirit, and we should not grieve Him, but rely on His salvation. We are living stones that make up the temple. We are reminded to build up spiritual houses, in holy priesthood, and should offer spiritual sacrifices as we flee from sexual immorality, and become acceptable to God through Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:4-5).


How great are You Lord our God in all the heavens and the earth. How great are Your purposes in all the earth. How great is Your love for us dear Jesus that You became sin and liberated from the eternal curse of sin, by giving us eternal life. How great is Your love for each one of us, we love You Lord. May You forgive us dear Jesus for the times we have committed sexual immorality. Wash us with Your precious blood Jesus, we humbly beseech You. May You heal us, and all the youth from addictions. We offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to You our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, which is true and proper worship, may You heal our hearts and renew our minds. May You heal all those who are sick and suffering in hospitals and at home dear Jesus. May You deliver us from the wave of COVID-19, we rest secure in You. May You heal our businesses and economy Abba Father. May You heal us from physical, relational, social, economic, financial, emotional and psychological distress, dear Jesus. By Your stripes we are healed. May our purposes bear much fruit in our lives according to Your divine grace. We love You Lord and bless Your holy name, now and forever. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now, and forever more. Amen

Blessed Thursday
