Expensive Body and Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:9-20)

The Apostle Paul taught the Corinthian Church that Christian liberty has limitations. The desires of the flesh should never be allowed to override the Holy Spirit’s gift of self-control. Ephesians 4:17-23

Christians are commanded to live pure, holy lives. 1 Peter 1:3-16

God resurrected Jesus and will resurrect the Believer through His resurrection power. Romans 10:9-13; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

The Christian’s body is set apart by God. When Christ is Lord and Savior of one’s life, that person is unified with God as a member of His body.
God condemns impure living in the Christian’s life. The Holy Spirit reminded the Apostle Paul of God’s original plan. Genesis 2:24

Paul emphasized that Believer’s in Jesus Christ are united and joined to the Lord in one spirit.

The Bible is clear that the righteous person must run away from sexual immorality in any form, whether in thoughts, actions, or behavior, whether visual or written. 2 Timothy 2:22

The sin of sexual immorality is an internalized sin. Sin stings and stains. It has lasting affects for all parties involved. God wants pure living from His saints. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

The Believer is also the spiritual temple of God and are indwelled by the Holy Spirit. You are not your own, you are expensive property of the Most High God.

Every Believer was bought with a great price. Christians were purchased with the precious, expensive blood of Jesus. Jesus made us His own.
John 3:16

Daily, Christians are to honor and glorify God with their Spirit-filled, earthly bodies. This is part of the Believer’s Biblical stewardship.

Are you living like you are loving Jesus?

How’s your Biblical stewardship?
