INDULGENCE OF THE BODY
1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV 15.Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16.What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17.But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18.Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19.What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20.For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.If ye love me, keep my commandments.
1)THE BODY DESIGNED TO BE A MEMBER OF CHRIST.
Verse 16.What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
1 Peter 3:18 KJV 18.For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
John 14:15-17 KJV 15.If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16.And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17.Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
SPIRIT OF TRUTH. HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN US.
2 Corinthians 5:5 KJV 5.Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
Romans 8:9 KJV 9.But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
NON-CHRISTIANS DON'T KNOW WHO THE LORD IS BECAUSE HE DOESN'T LIVE IN THEM.
Romans 8:16 KJV 16.Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we
pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV 20.The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
WE AS CHRISTIANS REPRESENT CHRIST AND A REAL AMBASSADOR.
WE AS CHRISTIANS NEED TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS TO OTHERS ABOUT CHRIST.
HOW WE ACT IS IMPORTANT IN FRONT OF OTHERS.
A CHRISTIAN SHOULD NEVER UNIT WITH AN IMMORAL PARTNER.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WITH US THROUGH OUR LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN.
Ephesians 4:30 KJV 30.And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
WE DO NOT NEED TO DO THINGS THAT WILL GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT SINCE HE DWELLS WITHIN US.
GOD SAYS TO FLEE OR RUN FROM IMMORAL SEXUALITY.
GOD WILL PROVIDE A WAY FOR US TO GET OUT.
1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV 13.There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
TEMPTATION BEYOND WHAT YOU CAN DEAL WITH.
2 Timothy 2:22 KJV 22.Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
LOOK FOR THE OPEN DOOR AND RUN.
2)BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Believers are temples of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38 KJV 38.Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
WE ARE NOT OUR OWN.
WE ARE THE LORD'S.
Galatians 2:20 KJV 20.I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
3)BOUGHT AT A PRICE SO HONOR THE LORD. HE BOUGHT US.
Ephesians 1:7 KJV 7.In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
1 Peter 1:18-19 KJV 18.Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19.But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
REGARDLESS OF OUR TALK IT IS OUR WALK WITH THE LORD AND ACTIONS DAILY.
PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW CHRIST ARE WATCHING YOUR ACTIONS.
WE NEED TO SHARE THE LORD WITH EVERYONE.
DEVIL KNOWS IF HE CAN CAPTURE OUR BODIES HE HAS US.
ONLY HOPE IS THE RENEWING OF OUR MINDS.
Romans 12:1-2 KJV 1.I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2.And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
FILL YOUR MIND WITH THE WORDS OF CHRIST.
HOLD TO GOD'S TEACHINGS AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
